Viking Exhibition

Last Friday we went to see the Viking exhibition which is on at The British Museum.

It was a good exhibition which gave me a basic understanding of Viking life. It emphasised that they weren’t all raiders and pillagers and informed us of other facets of Viking life such as trading, although it did focus on boat building.

There was an interesting part on spellcasting. It seems that Viking women used staffs that were akin to weaving tools to weave fate.
The only criticism I have is that the objects shown were not numbered which meant that I had to spend a lot of time working out which object the text was talking about.
