CSVA Mission

The Centre advances knowledge and understanding of the languages, literatures, history, and material and visual cultures of the Viking Age and its aftermath, in both Scandinavia and the Viking diaspora, for the benefit of academics, students and the general public.

Public engagement and knowledge exchange with non-academic audiences are important to us, and are based on the high-quality individual and collaborative research carried out by our members. We participate in collaborative projects, publications, conferences, seminars and networks with other academics across Britain and the world, and we train the scholars of the future by offering a Master's course and supervising PhD students.
