Heroes – Archaeological Museum of Val d’Oise

What makes a hero? Power, bravery, determination? Who were the real and mythical heroes of the Viking Age? Learn about how the Vikings viewed heroism at the Archaeological Museum of Val d’Oise .

In this compelling exhibition, discover some of the real-life hero ‘celebrities’ of the Viking world. Learn about Eric Bloodaxe – last Viking King of York, Harald Hardrada – the thunderbolt of the North, and Lathgertha – a semi-legendary warrior woman. Historical and archaeological evidence helps explore the idea of heroism in the Viking Age, as well as looking at how we celebrate and commemorate them in their time and ours.

Visitors can see Viking-age human remains showing battle injuries, including one skull that is accompanied by a facial reconstruction. Step inside our impressive replica Oseberg tent to be immersed in the sights, sounds and smells of a Viking encampment, or delve into the world of Norse myths with our themed family friendly content.
