What do we know about the Vikings now?


Thursday, 20 March 2014




Arts Building, Lecture Room 1

From North America to eastern Europe, the Vikings visited, raided or colonised more places than almost any other group of people before the modern era. Our understanding of what they did, why they did it, and what this meant for people in their Scandinavian homeland, is changing all the time. This lecture considers some of the latest research on what some scholars are now calling the Viking diaspora.
