Finding your Viking roots

A new exhibit at the Jorvik Viking Centre in York, England allows visitors to study new scientific techniques used to determine what Viking life was like. The exhibit also includes a "3-dimensional walk-through Viking riverside scene, graphics and interactive activities."

"Sarah Maltby, Head of Attractions at the JORVIK Viking Centre, commented: 'We’re very excited about the new exhibition; it’s a combination of modern technology and important Viking era evidence that really will bring the past to life for our visitors. We think it will be hugely popular with families who will be intrigued to work out if they could have Viking ancestors!'"

The family-oriented exhibit opens May 26, 2007
