Viking Variations

on BBC Two England

The recent spectacular exhibition at The British Museum has revealed to over half a million visitors the astonishing wealth and richness of the Viking world. Intricate designs fashioned in gold, silver, bronze and wood by artists of consummate skill was as much a part of the Viking world as the more familiar image of the fearsome helmeted warriors.
The first of two films depicting the variety of Viking art as shown by the treasures of their age, drawn from every corner of the Viking world, together with a glimpse of some of the work from which they drew their inspiration.
