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. In this special event, cinema audiences are taken on an exclusive private tour presented by historian and broadcaster Michael Wood. Curators Gareth Williams and Tom Williams bring 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. As night falls, there will also be a live, torch-lit burial ceremony in the Museum's grounds.
