For the first time in China, an exhibition will open in March focusing exclusively on the Vikings, and the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde will send its ship, Eik Sande, to become one of the main exhibits.
‘Dragons of the Northern Seas – The Viking Age of Denmark’ is a joint initiative between the museums of the Chinese city of Suzhou and Denmark’s Esbjerg and is part of an ongoing cultural exchange program between the two countries.
Flemming Just, who heads the Danish side of the project, described the event as a unique opportunity for Chinese visitors. “The exhibition will show some of the finest objects from Viking-age Denmark,” he said in a press release.
Artefacts from collections across Denmark depicting different aspects of the Vikings’ existence will be compiled for the exhibition.
