Vikings in the East Midlands: Forging relationships, forming identities - the exhibition

School of English, Trent Building

exhibition 2019a

Part of the exhibition

This is an exhibition researched and curated by the students of the 2018-19 cohort on the MA in Viking and Anglo-Saxon Studies as part of their work on the Research Methods module, convened by Dr John Baker.

The exhibition explores how Scandinavian settlers established themselves in the East Midlands while also maintaining a strong international outlook. Supported by Clare Pickersgill from the University of Nottingham Museum, the students selected a range of objects from domestic and public life which reveal the rich and diverse culture of the Scandinavians who settled here.

The objects in the exhibition have been generously loaned by the Vikings in the East Midlands collection (http://emidsmikings.ac.uk) and were created by Adam Parsons from Blueaxe Reproductions. The students would also like to thank John Baker, Judith Jesch and Christina Lee, for their advice and encouragement as they created the exhibition. They are grateful to the School of English for their generous support and to Rebecca Peck for her assistance.

The exhibition is in the School of English corridor on the ground floor of the Trent Building and can be viewed whenever the School is open.
