VIKING - Flyer (English)

22.06 — 17.11


The voyages of the Vikings created a cultural network that stretched from the North Atlantic to the Caspian Sea. The ship was a crucial factor, represented by Roskilde 6 – the heart of The National Museum’s 2013 Viking exhibition. The life of the ship from newly built warship to wreck has inspired the four

themes of the exhibition: The Viking World, Raids & War, Power & Glory and Belief & Ritual. In this way the exhibition sets focus on the Vikings’ society, religion, peaceful – and violent – expansions and international connections through both old and new archaeological finds.

THE FIRST RAID is an interactive computer game at the VIKING exhibition. The game is about wealth, strength, power and belief and can be played across several interactive game stations. These are activated by a chip. You can get the chip and login at the exhibition entrance.

The game remembers your actions and leads up to a Viking raid, which tests whether or not you have become a REAL VIKING. At the end of the game you can share your results on Facebook.
