The SMA is delighted to invite our Members to a special behind-the-scenes event at The Atkinson, Stockport, at 11 am on 27th June 2018.

The event includes a guided tour of ‘Viking: Rediscover the Legend’ by Joanne Chamberlain, The Atkinson’s documentation officer, and talk by Dr David Griffiths, University of Oxford, titled ‘North-West England and the Irish Sea in the Viking Age’.

Star objects from the British Museum will feature alongside the Yorkshire Museum’s world-class collections and will be interpreted in new ways to give a fresh perspective on how Vikings shaped every aspect of their lives in Britain. Also included will be one of the most famous Viking collections in the UK, including the Vale of York Viking Hoard, Cuerdale Hoard and the Bedale Hoard.

This is the first time the most significant Viking treasure hoards ever discovered in Britain will be on display together in the North West – don’t miss this opportunity for a behind-the-scenes tour!
