This special British Museum event offers an exclusive private view of the BP exhibition Vikings: life and legend and follows on from the hugely successful Pompeii from the British Museum cinema event released in 2013. Introduced by British Museum Director Neil MacGregor and presented by the celebrated broadcasting historians Michael Wood and Bettany Hughes, the exhibition will be brought to life by curator Gareth Williams, alongside experts on Viking ships and swords, burial and beliefs, language and legacy. With demonstrations, stunning close-up photography of the Viking objects in the exhibition and a torch-lit burial staged in the grounds of the museum, Vikings from the British Museum will be a reminder of how the Vikings have shaped modern lives across four continents.
