The Vikings Begin

The Vikings Begin

Utställningskatalog till vandringsutställningen The Vikings Begin av Gustavianum som visas i Zornmuseet 23 september 2022 - 16 april 2023.

"To make sense of history, we often think in terms of defined periods and clear developments. Different "eras" replace one another. But when we look closer at how events actually unfolded, the viev becomes more complicated. Some phenomena seem to be rooted so much further back than they should be, given traditional definitions. Other historical traits linger on well into a new era.

In this book, which accompanies the exibition The Vikings Begin, the Viking Age is explored in this new way. Archeologists Charlotte Hedenstierna-Jonson, John Ljungkvist and Neil Price write about the centuries leading up to the time of the Vikings, and define some central characteristics of Viking-Age society. This approach leads them to give us a new viev of how the Vikings emerged."
