Vikings in Scotland: burials, bling and the fish event horizon!

Updated: Dec 19, 2018

When I spotted the Vikings in Scotland conference advertised I knew it was once again time to make the trip to the bright lights of Scotland's central belt. Vikings in Scotland: An Archaeological Survey (1998), by James Graham-Campbell and Colleen Batey was a groundbreaking work. Twenty years later, and this Viking conference was designed to celebrate Campbell and Batey's work, by sharing the latest research on this fascinating topic.

The conference opened with a field trip to the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, including the rare opportunity to get behind the scenes to see Viking material not on display!
