The Vikings have landed in melbourne
Vikings: Beyond the Legend brings this rich, often-misunderstood culture to life, debunking stereotypes and providing a fascinating insight into Viking domestic life, rituals and beliefs.
Over 450 artefacts come together to form the largest collection of its kind displayed in Melbourne. Among the rare treasures on show are the astoundingly beautiful skeletal remains of a Viking longship, one of the finest Thor’s-hammer pendants ever found, and Viking swords dating from 700 AD to 1100 AD.
