The Vikings Begin invites visitors into the martial, maritime, and magic-filled world of early Norse society. Visitors will encounter dozens of early Viking artifacts – many over 1400 years old – from boat graves discovered at a site in central Sweden. Only in the US for a limited time, this exhibition brings to life cutting-edge research about some of history’s most fascinating people.

Presented by J.L. Bedsole Foundation with additional support from Nan A. Altmayer Charitable Trust, WKRG, Alabama Humanities Alliance, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

This exhibition is curated by Gustavianum, Uppsala University Museum, Sweden.
