Exhibition Centre


Coming soon for a limited season only!

What makes a hero? Power, bravery, determination? The JORVIK Group's new summer exhibition Heroes explores the Viking idea of a hero. Discover some of the 'celebrities' of the Viking world such as Bloodaxe, Bluetooth and Hardrada and some powerful Viking women including Aud the Deep-minded. Explore how they were celebrated and commemorated and what archaeological evidence can tell us about their stories. Delve into the world of Viking myth and uncover the superpowers of the Viking gods through story and play in our children's area. Bringing the story up to date the exhibition will also explore more recent representations of the Vikings. How have views of the Vikings changed? What makes a hero - you decide!

Opens 20th July - 3rd November
