The wreck of the longest Viking longship in the world is the main attraction at the National Museum’s major international special exhibition, VIKING. The exhibition will be in the National Museum of Denmark’s 1,000 square metre special exhibition hall, Egmonthallen.
VIKING is the National Museum’s largest special exhibition on Vikings for twenty years. The exhibition will touch upon themes such as war and expansion, power and aristocracy, rituals and beliefs as well as cultural contacts and trade. These are the central narratives in the exhibition, which will show objects from museums in twelve European countries.
The exhibition will include a number of unique and new finds, which have never been exhibited before as well as objects that have never before been included in a cross-cultural exhibition. It will include a large new hoard of gold and silver from Yorkshire in England and hoards found in Russia and Norway.
The essence of the Vikings will be shown by their way of depicting themselves and the exhibition will be able to display some of the world famous chess pieces from Lewis in Scotland, which are shaped as Viking warriors.
