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.
