An opportunity for a guided tour of ‘Viking: Rediscover the Legend’ by one of its curators, Dr. Andrew Woods. The exhibition brings together two of the most significant Viking collections in a major new exhibition. Featuring some of the most exciting Anglo-Saxon and Viking discoveries ever made, the exhibition explores how the Vikings transformed life in Britain.
Alongside outstanding objects, the exhibition includes a ground-breaking Virtual Reality reconstruction of the army camp at Torksey, Lincs. This builds upon the research of Prof. Dawn Hadley, who will speak about her work at the site.
Following the tour there is the opportunity to attend Dr. Steve Ashby’s paper ‘Of Locks and Socks: aspects of everyday life in Viking towns’.
The tour will begin at 4pm. Please contact Andrew Woods (Andrew.Woods@ymt.org.uk), for details and to register your intention to attend. There is no charge for this event.
