The Djanogly Gallery will be hosting a major touring exhibition from the British Museum and York Museums Trust from 25 November. Viking: Rediscover the Legend presents new discoveries and current interpretations to help us understand what it meant to be a Viking.

Complementing this in the Weston Gallery from Friday 15 December, Danelaw Saga: Bringing Vikings Back to the East Midlands examines Viking influences on Nottinghamshire and the wider region.

An exciting programme of workshops, talks and other events supplements both exhibitions – allowing you to delve deeper into the world of the Vikings and uncover the legacy of the Vikings on our doorstep.

Both exhibitions and connected events have been programmed in collaboration by the University of Nottingham Museum, Manuscripts and Special Collections at the University of Nottingham, and the Bringing Vikings Back to the East Midlands project, led by the University of Nottingham’s Centre for the Study of the Viking Age.
