Arts & Science Festival 2014

From North America to eastern Europe, the Vikings visited, raided or colonised more places than almost any other group of people before the modern era. Our understanding of what they did, why they did it, and what this meant for people in their Scandinavian homeland, is changing all the time.

This lecture by Dr Chris Callow, Lecturer in Medieval History, considers some of the latest research on what some scholars are now calling the Viking diaspora.

This event is presented as part of Arts & Science Festival 2014, a week-long celebration of ideas, research and collaboration across campus. For details of the full programme, visit: www.birmingham.ac.uk/artsandsciencefestival.
