The Heroes - of the Viking World exhibition will give people of all ages the chance to discover some of the real-life ‘celebrities’ of the Viking world, such as last King of York Eric Bloodaxe, King Cnut the Great and Harald Hardrada – the thunderbolt of the North.

Visitors can explore how they were celebrated and what the archaeological evidence can tell us about them. Their stories are told through a series of display panels, replica objects and Viking Age human remains displaying the battle injuries of a warrior. On display will also be Viking remains from Oxfordshire’s county collections, excavated from St John’s College, Oxford.

A Viking encampment-themed children’s area examines the world of Viking myth, uncovering the superpowers of gods such as Thor and Odin through story and play. There are also games and crafting activities to encourage all ages to find out more.
