360° Degree Vikings

The Brecks Fen Edge and Rivers Landscape Partnership provides new opportunities to discover the key role of the Norfolk and Suffolk Brecks in the story of Vikings in Britain.

From the middle decades of the 9th century, Anglo-Saxon East Anglia was an integral part of the Viking world, which spanned the North Sea basin. In the year AD 869, the Brecks area became a focus for the Viking Great Army, which made camp in Thetford and killed the East Anglian King Edmund in battle.

As part of our ongoing work to ensure that our partner's hard work is accessible to all, and continues to provide a long-lasting resource, we have teamed up with Vortex Visual Ltd. to create an amazing 360° tour of Ancient House Museum's recent 'Vikings on your Doorstep' exhibition, which ended after a year-long run earlier this summer.

A fascinating new addition to our website, this tour allows you to walk around the exhibition from the comfort of your home (or anywhere else), and view the exhibits, artefacts, and interpretation materials, including a number of supporting seminars and documents such as the Breckland Society's River Raiders report. Artifacts found in the Brecks, and on display were gathered from all over the country and some were loaned by the British museum. They and included high value items such as coins, gold jewellery, broaches, stirrups and swords, as well as everyday goods such as gaming pieces, pins and pottery.

This online resource means that a temporary exhibition is now accessible in perpetuity, and those who were not able to make to Ancient House Museum to see it live, including schools and students of our Viking history, can now do so at their leisure.
