JORVIK Viking Centre is proud to announce a special three year collaboration with the British Museum.

The first items to be featured include treasures from the Halton Moor Hoard, coins of Canute as king of both England and Denmark, and a unique die, used to strike coins towards the end of his reign. Weaponry, including spearheads and a ‘pattern-welded’ sword found near Windsor will also be on display, with axe heads and stirrups of the kind used by Vikings when travelling over land on horseback.

Other exciting items on display include the exquisite jewelry discovered in Gotland, off the coast of Sweden.
