Incredible Viking weapons and treasure at Nottingham exhibition

Incredible Viking weaponsSome of the world’s most important artefacts charting the history of the Vikings and their presence in Britain are on display in a new Nottingham exhibition.

Viking: Rediscover the Legend has transformed the Djanogly Gallery at Lakeside Arts into a collection of ancient treasure, weaponry and intricate everyday items from across Britain.

The Anglo-Saxon and Viking artefacts from the British Museum and Yorkshire Museum Trust provide a fresh perspective on how their influence transformed and shaped our culture.

Among the collection is the York Helmet, a perfectly preserved piece of Anglo Saxon armour discovered in York in 1982. Dating back to around 750-775AD, it is considered the most outstanding object of the period ever discovered.
