It’s generally a little known fact that the term Viking was predominantly used as a verb. The practise of second sons, who had no prospects at home, to go abroad and find one’s fortune.
What is generally also not well known is how international our ancient predecessors were, and how global the world was a millenium ago. The ancient Britons and Scanavians, on the outsirts of civilisation, were drinking from glass goblets created in Lebanon, wearing silk shirts from China, and tasting exoctic spices from India.
To highlight this exciting and little known aspect of our forebærers, the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde have opened a new exhibition called The World in the Viking Age, where a new innovative interactive design by Yoke , like a brilliant piece of artwork, highlights and delights audiences.
