  • Viking researchers help the British Museum translate Norse culture.

    The BP-sponsored exhibition, Vikings - Life and Legend, showcases archaeological discoveries new and old, including religious images, coins and jewellery, swords and axes.

    The AHRC research project, 'Languages, Myths and Finds' is built around the British Museum exhibition and involves 20 PhD students from eight universities led by Nottingham.

    This NEW one hour virtual Bible tour examines the historical detail behind Daniel’s accounts and life in Babylon, on display here at the British Museum. Presented in small groups via Zoom with a live JW guide.


    Consider the background of the mighty city of Babylon where Daniel lived in exile

    - Look at evidence for the characters that Daniel mentions
    - Examine the religious context in Babylon at that time

    #vikings #interesting #weirdworld
    The ferocious seafaring vikings were a feared Scandinavian invader from the late 700’s AD. Over three centuries their ships carried the ruthless warriors to nearby and distant lands, which included the British Isles and northern Europe. They ranged as far as Northern Africa, the Middle East, the Mediterranean and present day Turkey and Canada. Doing battle as pirates, raiders and traders, the Viking voyagers formed settlements and governments in many parts of the world, establishing themselves and their descendents as rulers and nobility.

  • The British Museum is full of stolen artifacts


    And so far, it isn't giving them back.

    Subscribe to our channel!

    Some of the world’s greatest cultural and historical treasures are housed in London’s British Museum, and a significant number of them were taken during Britain’s centuries-long imperial rule. In recent years, many of the countries missing their cultural heritage have been asking for some of these items back.

    Benin City in Nigeria is one of those places. They've been calling for the return of the Benin Bronzes, hundreds of artifacts looted in 1897 when British soldiers embarked a punitive expedition to Benin. Many are now housed in the British Museum.

    And it's just the beginning. As the world reckons with the damage inflicted during Europe’s colonial global takeover, the calls for these items to be returned are getting louder and louder.

    To dig deeper into the 1897 Benin Punitive Expedition and the Benin Bronzes check out this book by Staffan Lunden:

    And this article in the Journal of African History by Philip A. Igbafe:

    For more information on the two Benin Bronzes returned by Mark Walker, check out this piece by The Guardian:

    Here are some links to learn more about the other contested items on the British Museum’s “Don’t Miss List” we reference in the video:

    Greece seeks return of Parthenon Marbles amid restoration project

    Egypt called; it wants its Rosetta Stone back

    Easter Islanders call for return of statue from British Museum

    Tajik leader wants treasure from British Museum

    Lastly, here is an opinion piece by prominent lawyer Geoffrey Robertson arguing why the pieces should be returned:

    And here is another opinion piece by author Tiffany Jenkins arguing why the pieces should stay in Western museums: is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines. Check out

    Walk 56 / A Loop Around The British Museum / Great Russell St, Bloomsbury, London WC1B 3DG, UK / London, United Kingdom (UK) / 8 March 2019, Friday


    I had spent a lot of time in this museum when I was studying in London. It is a massive depository of everything that the British Empire has ‘gathered’ over the years. In many ways, all museums celebrate the act of collecting, and the act of collecting is, and always will be, facilitated by wealth and power. I often have mixed feelings about historical museums. These sites in which neutrality is maintained. How historians speak of their positions as keepers but not judges. I will not entertain a single perspective that colonisation can be justified. It fuelled (and continues to) so many things that the human race should be ashamed of; slavery, exploitation, wars and most of all, the act of labelling the other as the other. Anyway. I don’t know why I didn’t take off my jacket when I was making this video. I was literally boiling. Sweat has been literally spilt to make this video, aligning with all the blood and tears over centuries as secretly spoken by all the artefacts in this museum.

  • Greatest Archaeological Discovery in British History - Visiting Sutton Hoo

  • The Jorvik Viking Centre York. Primitive Tools, Museum Tour and Ride.


    Hi guys I hope you are all well and doing good. Well! I have just got back from my camping holiday over on the beautiful east coast of Yorkshire. Whilst on holiday I took the opportunity to visit the Jovik Viking Centre. I thought this would make an interesting video for the channel as bushcraft and vikings are very closely related and a lot of techniques and methods we use in bushcraft originate from the viking culture. There was loads to see and it was an amazing experience to get a glimpse into the real lives of the Vikings. In this video you will see early examples of some of the modern tools we use in bushcraft today, such as knives, axes; fire kits and lots of early cooking paraphernalia too, it was awesome. I apologise in advance for some of the camera lighting. In places it was very dark so some of the footage is a little grainy but not distracting. So grab a seat and a brew and spend the next 20 mins on a tour around the Viking Centre ;)

    If you are planning on visiting the Jorvic please refrain from watching as this video will ruin the experience for you.

  • 1/4 Viking Art: A Culture Show Special


    First broadcast: Mar 2014.
    The Vikings are famous for their violent raids on Anglo-Saxon monasteries, incredible shipbuilding skills and general brutality. They are less famous, perhaps, for their artistic talents. Yet the precious fragments of art that survive from the Viking Age portray a far more mysterious side to Viking culture. From the so-called 'gripping beast' motif of the Oseberg wood carvings to the abstract animal ornamentation that adorns Viking jewellery, Viking art is defined by beautiful intricate artistic styles that are distinctly Scandinavian yet also show the Vikings' interaction with other cultures, culminating in their conversion from paganism to Christianity. To coincide with the first major exhibition on Vikings at the British Museum for over 30 years, Andrew Graham-Dixon invites viewers to explore and admire the splendours of Viking art.

  • A Viking Brooch at the British Museum

  • How Roman was Roman-Britain? | Britannia 55BC to AD69

  • 258 years of the British Museum


    The British Museum opened its doors to visitors 258 years ago this month, on 15 January 1759. The first national public museum in the world, it was – and still is – open to ‘all studious and curious persons’.

    To celebrate the anniversary, Director Hartwig Fischer talks about the people who come to the Museum today, and the people who are represented in the collection. At first, the Museum had around 50 visitors a day. Now there are around 15,000 people in the Museum every day, plus half a million who engage online through the website and social media. The conversation has become global – fitting for a museum of the world, for the world.

  • discovering the Sutton Hoo Ship Burial with Dr Sue Brunning, Curator, The British Museum


    In Summer 1939, Charles W. Phillips, Fellow of Selwyn College, supervised the team responsible for excavating Britain’s greatest ever archaeological discovery – the Sutton Hoo ship burial. This spectacular grave, perhaps of a seventh-century king, dispelled the myth of the ‘Dark Ages’ and revealed a world of artistic brilliance, complex beliefs and far-flung international connections.

    In this lecture, British Museum curator Dr Sue Brunning presents the burial from Sutton Hoo through the diary and photographs of Charles W. Phillips. His first-hand testimony provides a thrilling glimpse of what it was like to make the find of a lifetime, recovering material culture of a nature and quality never seen before – and all as the world hurtled towards the Second World War.
