What and who is it for? 

The Centre for the Study of the Viking Age places great importance on communicating its expertise in the subject to teachers, museum and heritage professionals, the media, and the interested general public.

The Midlands Viking Symposium seeks to encourage greater public engagement with the research of the CSVA and to enhance collaboration with the universities of Birmingham and Leicester. It usually takes place on the last Saturday of April.
