The Viking World
Here you can find text and photos for all themes, displays and objects that are part of the exhibition The Viking World at the Swedish History Museum in Stockholm.
You can explore fascinating stories about power and inequality. About the farmstead at the heart of the clan. About the dramatic transition from the old customs and traditions, known as forn siðr, to Christian beliefs. About stunning craftwork. About journeys to the East and to the West, about life, death, daily normality and terrifying rituals.
