Heroes of the Viking World


19 July - 31 December 2021 AD

We are delighted to host at Candie this extraordinary touring exhibition from The JORVIK Group of Attractions, operators of the award-winning JORVIK Viking Centre.  

Explore how Vikings were celebrated in their time and throughout history.  Discover what the archaeological evidence can tell us about the real people behind the myths. Stories are told through a series of display panels, replica objects and human remains displaying battle injuries.  Immerse yourself in the smells and sights of the Viking Age when you step inside the impressive replica Viking tent!

The JORVIK Group is owned by York Archaeological Trust and is made up of five unique heritage attractions in the city of York. Beginning in 1984 with the opening of the world-famous JORVIK Viking Centre,  the group has grown to include: DIG: An Archaeological Adventure, Barley Hall, and most recently, The Richard III & Henry VII Experiences.
