For those of you with an RSS feed to my blog, I hope you read this in time! There’s a live stream on YouTube tonight at 20 hrs (if you live in the UK) by the British Museum.

A new exhibition on Vikings has opened in the Netherlands. ‘We, Vikings’ can now be visited at the Fries museum. The exhibition tells the story of the local community in medieval Frisia and how they dealt with the Vikings, the raiding as well as the trading. The exhibition will run until mid-March 2020. See the web site: Fries Museum.
