This exhibition has now closed, find out what else is going on at National Maritime Museum Cornwall

Rare antiquities on loan from museums across the UK and Denmark are used to unlock the secrets of the Viking world.

The exhibition delves into Viking beliefs and rituals, as well as their raiding, trading, navigation and seamanship as Cnut’s empire of the sea.

Local association with the Vikings is a key aspect of the display; not only did the Norse warriors ally themselves with the Cornish against West Saxon expansion, Cornwall became an important stop-off point on their sailing route from Scandinavia to Scotland, Ireland and France.
