Leach Studio help conquer new Vikings exhibition


Huddersfield-based exhibition designers Leach Studio has helped to bring the legendary Viking story to life at the Yorkshire Museum.



Leach Studio help conquer new Vikings exhibition

A touring exhibition – which features some of the most exciting Anglo-Saxon and Viking discoveries ever made in Britain– is now on display at this prestigious museum, thanks to a major partnership with the British Museum and York Museums Trust. 

Star objects from both world-renowned collections, plus ground-breaking new archaeological research have come together in this new interpretative revelation.

Leach’s brief was to help change the way that people perceive the notorious Vikings – an iconic group of seafarers commonly thought of as pillaging thieves. The exhibit therefore shows a more untold side of their tale, illustrating their traits as pioneering explorers and talented craftsmen, with rich religious beliefs and an incredibly discerning fashion sense!

After an extensive 6 month project, Leach has created a number of beautiful graphic displays with high-resolution photographs that allow visitors to study the precious discoveries in more detail. Fun interactive features have also been incorporated to contextualise the artefacts shown throughout – there is even the opportunity to experience what it might have been like to row a Viking long boat, with a seascape backdrop plus audio of crashing waves and loud Viking voices.

Commenting on the new exhibit, Natalie Buy, Curator of Archaeology at the Yorkshire Museum, said: “We wanted to provide a fresh perspective on how the Vikings shaped every aspect of British life, and, for many people, this will mean we’re challenging perceptions of what it meant to be a Viking.

“But this is exactly what these exhibits are designed to do – immerse, enlighten and inspire. We’ve already received some fantastic feedback which is a true testament to the work of Leach in helping us to bring this story to life.”

The exhibition will be on display at the Yorkshire Museum in York until 5 November 2017. It will then tour to the University of Nottingham Museum, as well as The Atkinson in Southport, Aberdeen Art Gallery and Norwich Castle Museum.
