Article | Film Tells History of 92-Coin Furness Viking Hoard

Published by North West Evening Mail, Wednesday, 16 January 2013

A NEW documentary featuring graphic re-enactments is set to transport viewers back to the times when marauding Vikings ruled the Furness peninsula.

The short film will form a key part of the highly-anticipated Viking gallery when it officially launches at the Dock Museum in Barrow next month.

Filmed by Dalton-based videographer Stuart Appley, of Comely Media, the five-minute documentary details the history behind the 92-coin Viking hoard.

The video is the latest addition to the growing exhibition which, as well as the hoard, will also house a replica longboat and three bronze axes.

Museum collections and exhibitions manager Sabine Skae said the excitement was building among both staff and local history buffs ahead of the opening.
