Vikings: Warriors of the North, Giants of the Sea

WA Maritime Museum

Beyond Pillage and Plunder

When we think of Vikings, we think of fierce warriors wielding blades of iron and steel. We think of sleek, powerful vessels carrying fearless raiders across treacherous seas to invade foreign shores.

Theirs was a time of conquest and colonisation, but the legacy of the Vikings is defined by more than the battles they won.

Vikings: Warriors of the North, Giants of the Sea is your chance to learn the true stories of conquest, plunder, craft, trade and adventure which turned these Nordic people into heroes of myth and legend.
