This special British Museum cinema event offers an exclusive private view of the BP exhibition Vikings: life and legend filmed live in London in April 2014. Introduced by British Museum Director Neil MacGregor and presented by historian and broadcaster Michael Wood, the exhibition will be brought to life by curators Gareth Williams and Tom Williams, alongside experts on Viking ships and swords, burial and beliefs, and language and legacy.

With demonstrations, stunning close-up photography of the Viking objects in the exhibition and a torch-lit burial staged in the grounds of the museum, Vikings from the British Museum will be a reminder of how the Vikings have shaped our modern lives.

Running time: 90 mins (to be confirmed)

Supported by BP

Organised with the National Museum of Denmark and the Museum für Vor-und Frühgeschichte, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin
