Discover Life and Death in Viking Britain
At Valhalla you can explore the Viking attitudes to life and death during this dynamic era. Follow the lives that these people once led and learn how they were commemorated through burial rites and rituals. This exciting exhibition displays significant artefacts from excavations in York, including a Viking-age skeleton that was unearthed in the city, displayed alongside a facial reconstruction and astonishing grave goods. Don’t miss the striking replica boat dressed for a ship burial, complete with replica grave goods such as armour and jewellery. Plus, little ones can discover the world of Viking mythology and sagas in our hands-on children’s area.
