“We call them Vikings!” In collaboration the history museum of Sweden and MuseumsPartner of Austria
After Ottawa, New York, Sydney, Chicago, Barcelona, Tallinn... this international exhibition, which has already attracted over 1.3 million visitors worldwide, is presented for the first time in France. From 793 to 1066 AD, the Vikings, traders, looters, navigators and explorers all played a key role in the history of the European Middle Ages. Much of our knowledge about the Vikings has been delivered to us by the victims of their abuse. Today, the notion of "Viking" still evokes words like "piracy", "looting" and "violence". Thanks to a collection of exceptional objects, with over 550 original archaeological pieces rarely exhibited outside Sweden and multimedia devices, the exhibition revisits the Viking myth.
