Vikings: The North Atlantic Saga
Vikings: The North Atlantic Saga was on display at the Houston Museum of Natural Science from July 14 through Oct. 14, 2001.
This was not a tale of horn-helmeted marauders but of farmers and fisherman, husbands and wives, who managed to settle and survive in one of the last regions of the globe to be populated. Visitors to the exhibition travelled along with the first Europeans to reach North American shores from their origins in Scandinavia. This exhibition was developed by the National Museum of Natural History in cooperation with the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the state museum of the 5 Nordic Countries.
