‘History becomes new again’ in the latest YourDIG exhibition. YourDIG: Help for Heroes tells the story of Help for Heroes beneficiaries, from Catterick Garrison, and their year-long adventure building a Viking ship and exploring Viking history.

Discover their journeys so far, as they have engaged with Viking artefacts, learnt wood-working techniques, and bonded with each other along the way. Their experiences are expressed through their own art, music, and poetry, all within the context of Viking travel and trade – themes they have explored throughout this project. The exhibition displays these artistic responses, as well as some of the Viking artefacts which inspired the participants.

Discover the story that began as an idea to build a Viking ship, and transformed into this exhibition co-produced by the participants, with help from staff at York Archaeological Trust.
