An Encore screeing of the exclusive, expertly guided tour of the British Museum's new blockbuster Vikings exhibition. The British Museum's spectacular 'Vikings: Life and Legend' exhibition offers an extraordinary insight into how these great warriors shaped our modern lives. There are plenty of surprises in store as we learn how they created a complex international trading network covering four continents. We also discover our direct connections to the Vikings through language, poetry, names, place names and even our DNA. Featuring British Museum Director Neil MacGregor, this special cinema event takes audiences on an informative private tour presented by historians and broadcasters Bettany Hughes and Michael Wood. Curator Gareth Williams brings the exhibition to life, alongside experts on Viking ships and swords, burial and beliefs, language and legacy. The broadcast includes stunning close-up photography of exhibits and the construction of the prow of a giant Viking ship. There is also an atmospheric torch-lit burial ceremony in the Museum's grounds. If you're unable to make the live screening make sure to catch the Encore re-broadcast on 09 June.
