This special event offers an exclusive private view of the BP exhibition Vikings: life and legend in the company of world experts, presented live via satellite at QUAD. Introduced by British Museum Director Neil MacGregor and presented by historian and broadcaster Michael Wood, the exhibition will be brought to life by curators Gareth Williams and Tom Williams, alongside experts on Viking Ships and swords, burial and beliefs, language and legacy. The exhibition is the first on the Viking world at the British Museum for over 30 years. At the centre of the exhibition will be the surviving timbers of a 37-metre-long warship, the longest ever found. With demonstrations, stunning close-up photography of the Viking objects in the exhibition and a live, torch-lit burial in the grounds of the Museum, the broadcast of Vikings Live will be a reminder of how the Vikings have shaped our modern lives. - See more at: http://www.derbyquad.co.uk/film/vikings-live-british-museum-12a#sthash.ghaRGtF2.dpuf
