This special event offers an exclusive private view of the BP exhibition Vikings: life and legend, presented live in your local cinema. Featuring British Museum Director Neil MacGregor and presented by historian and broadcasters Michael Wood and Bettany Hughes, the exhibition will be brought to life by Exhibition Curator Gareth Williams, alongside experts on Viking ships and swords, burial and beliefs, and language and legacy.
With demonstrations, stunning close-up photography of the Viking objects in the exhibition and a torch-lit burial in the grounds of the Museum, the broadcast of Vikings Live will be a reminder of how the Vikings have shaped our modern lives.
