Visualizing the Vikings and their Gods

The exhibition Visualizing the Vikings and their Gods (January 7 - February 1, 2020) presents changing imaginings of Vikings from the earliest and rarest, to recent and widespread. Images include a prehistoric picture stone in Sweden, 18th century Icelandic manuscript illustrations of Norse Mythology, and various portrayals of Vikings and their gods in early print books. A digital display surveying more recent and contemporary popular media constructions of Vikings is also included.

The exhibit complements this year’s topic Viking Life and Lore at the Victoria Medieval Conference on February 1, 2020. Link to conference.
