On its first North American stop, “Vikings: Lives Beyond the Legends” has come ashore at the Royal BC Museum in Victoria.
The international exhibition is informed by recent discoveries and provides fascinating insights into the Viking era. It runs through Nov. 11.
Artifacts plus interactive computer displays and hands-on activities help tell the story of the Viking people, illustrating who they really were and challenging commonly held beliefs about that period. The exhibition features more than 500 rare artifacts, including jewellery, swords, axes and clothing.
