British Museum Vikings exhibition helps researchers translate Norse heritage
From Emma Rayner
Professor Judith Jesch from the University’s Centre for the Study of the Viking Age has contributed her expertise to this landmark exhibition in the form of interviews and audio recordings on Viking culture to accompany the exhibits. She will also be taking part in ‘Vikings Live’ from the British Museum to be streamed in cinemas across the UK on 24 April 2014.
Now, thanks to a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), Professor Jesch is leading an initiative to bring knowledge about Viking heritage to parts of the UK and Ireland where there is potential to develop local understanding of their links to this fascinating period.
