From November 21, 2008 to May 11, 2009 the Vikings Exhibit is being held at the Maritime Museum of British Columbia in Bastion Square, Victoria.

Popular images of the Vikings has been that of horned-helmeted, bloodthirsty sea rovers, bent on the destruction of Western Civilization.

The truth, however, is shown at the Maritime Museum, where early Swedes, Norwegians and Icelanders were the real story.  The exhibits are shown though panels and artifacts from excavations in North America and Europe to show the look of a typical settlement.

 

 

The exhibit uses archaeological findings to show a much more complex picture of the Norsemen than that of popular belief, and who were fantastic ship builders.
