Viking Women

This exhibit explores women's place in the Viking Age. It considers what their roles were, what they wore, and how women explore the Viking Age past in the present through reenactment. It also discusses the ever-popular shieldmaiden and valkyries. The exhibit is constructed from items submitted to The World-Tree Project or previously digitised and freely available online. If you see a topic that is not covered here, please leave a comment and suggest items that might be added to the database so we can expand the exhibit.
