For the first time in 30 years, the Vikings will be making a much-anticipated return to the British Museum, bringing with them all the style that has made them every school boy's dream to study.

Opening in March, this incredible display of objects features the conserved timbers of an actual Viking warship, dozens of weapons that were once waved threateningly in the air and a plethora of looted objects including jewellery and money.

Discover how objects of status were worn by warriors about to enter battle and how the incredible reach of these Scandinavian soldiers saw them conquering nations all over the world.

Those familiar with the stories and legends surrounding the Viking society will be particularly thrilled to discover that new research will be present at the exhibition.

If you're taking the kids along, be sure to check into The Rubens at the Palace, where you can be certain your little ones will be entertained as part of the Families at the Rubens package.
