‘Meet the curator’ – Viking: Rediscover the Legend exhibition

Join us for a chance to meet Andrew Woods, Senior Curator at the Yorkshire Museum and explore the Viking: Rediscover the Legend exhibition for the first of our pre-conference events. Andrew has worked for York Museums Trust for five years, initially as Curator of Numismatics and recently as Senior Curator for the Yorkshire Museum. He has worked on major acquisitions and research projects as well as providing numismatic expertise across Yorkshire. He co-curated the major touring exhibition Viking: Rediscover the Legend.

Two of the most significant and internationally recognised collections of Viking Age treasure in Britain have been brought together for the first time in this major new exhibition.

Star objects from the British Museum feature alongside the Yorkshire Museum’s world class collections and are interpreted in new ways to give a fresh perspective on how the Vikings shaped every aspect of life in Britain.
