A thousand years ago neither Swedes nor Sweden existed.

In this exhibition the visitor is able to discover the marks of the Viking Age peoples who lived here in eastern Scandinavia.

Meet individuals such as the magnot of Vendel, the girl from Birka and powerful women rulers.


För tusen år sedan fanns inget Sverige och inga svenskar.

I den här utställningen upptäcker du spåren av de vikingatida folk som levde här i östra Skandinavien.

Du kan också möta enskilda individer som godsherren från Vendel, flickan från Birka och hedniska härskarinnor."
