Residents sneak a peek at Viking life

April 30th 2014

Residents of Ogilvy Court were given the opportunity to take a look into the life of a Viking at the British Museum’s exhibition, Vikings: Life & Legend.

The latest exhibition depicting Nordic life took place in the new Sainsbury Exhibitions Gallery, the centrepiece of which was a 37m Longship which is suggested may have belonged to King Canute!
Ogilvy Court has been working closely with the British Museum, often receiving complimentary tickets for special previews and residents were lucky enough to have received tickets to this interesting look at Viking life.
They were taken by minibus to the exhibition which also gave them the opportunity to view the bustling streets of the city and the vibrant and diverse atmosphere of Camden Town from the comfort of their seats.
