Ex­hi­bi­tion looks at Norse pe­riod

The Oban Times - - News -

A NEW ex­hi­bi­tion in Mu­seum nan Eilean, Ben­bec­ula, is ex­plor­ing the Norse pe­riod in the Outer He­brides, from the first ar­rival of the raid­ing Vikings to their set­tle­ment on the is­lands.

The ex­hi­bi­tion charts changes in the daily life of the in­hab­i­tants of the is­lands, the im­por­tance of craft ac­tiv­i­ties and the artis­tic and re­li­gious life of the im­mi­grants.

Ar­chae­o­log­i­cal arte­facts from a num­ber of sites across the Outer He­brides are ex­hib­ited, in­clud­ing arte­facts from the 30 years of ex­ca­va­tion by Iain Craw­ford at Udal in North Uist.

A spe­cial event for the com­mu­nity to go along for a pri­vate view­ing was held yes­ter­day (Wed­nes­day).
