For the last few weeks, our team has been on-site at the Yorkshire Museum as our most recent project is installed.
‘Viking: Rediscover the Legend’, is an exciting new touring exhibition by Yorkshire Museums Trust in partnership with the British Museum. A fantastic array of Viking and Saxon artefacts will be on display including iconic objects such as the Gilling Sword, York Helmet and one of the Lewis Chessmen.
Changing the way in which people perceive Vikings, this new exhibition aims to challenge the common misconception that Vikings were no more than pillaging thieves. Evidence has shown that Vikings were pioneering explorers, travelling great lengths across the globe, had a rich culture and religious beliefs and were makers and followers of fashion… as well as being pillaging thieves!
Beautiful graphic design and fun interactives by Leach Studio feature alongside the artefacts to help visitors appreciate them in the context of the story. These are being installed over the next few weeks, carefully co-ordinated with artefact installation by the client team. The official opening is at the end of this week – keep an eye on our website for more updates!
