A major new millennium initiative - including an exhibit, catalog, website, television documentary, and educational programming - explores the origins and impacts of this pivotal moment in history. From the rise of the Scandinavian kingdoms during the Viking Age (A.D.750 to 1050) to the demise of the Greenland colonies around A.D. 1500, Vikings: The North Atlantic Saga examines the history of the western expansion of the Vikings and sheds new light on a well known culture.
This exhibition has been made possible through the generous support of the Nordic Council of Ministers and Volvo.
