WWU Vikings at the Nordic Museum

Nordic Museum Viking Collection
REGISTRATION CLOSED! The Vikings Begin is not the story of 1893 and the founding of Western, but it is the story of the Vikings of early Scandinavia (Sweden, Denmark, and Norway)—oceangoing maritime people who traveled the far corners of the world.

Uppsala University’s museum, Gustavianum, has produced this exhibition of original artifacts, reconstructions, and archaeological discoveries from early Viking Age society using cutting-edge research. These objects tell the story not only of the person buried with them, but also of the world they inhabited: its social and economic makeup, its religions, and its culture.
