Event: The Viking World: Diversity and Change, Nottingham, 2016

The Viking World: Diversity and Change,
Nottingham,
27th June to 2nd July 2016

The Viking Age was a period of profound changes and global impact: from the expansion across the Atlantic to the extension of trade routes to the east. It is fair to say that England was forged in response to Viking activity and even today ‘Vikings’ seem to elicit much response in popular culture. In a year that sees the anniversary of the first Scandinavian king on the English throne in 1016 and the 950th anniversary of the Norman Conquest it seems pertinent to look at the Viking World in all its different facets. The Centre for the Study of the Viking Age are therefore very pleased to announce the conference programme for ‘The Viking World: Diversity and Change’ which will take place at Nottingham from 27th June to 2nd July 2016:

Papers cover a range of topics and disciplines: from the Eastern expansion to North Atlantic colonies, language, place-names and literature, archaeology, runology, mythology and modern perceptions.
