Research Trips


The spring of 2019, Professor Arner lead team members Madison, Joseph and Ethan on a research trip to Iceland.


In the Fall of 2019, Professor Arner took team members Ethan and Anna on a trip to Denmark to visit the Viking Ship Museum, the Trelleborg Fortress, and the Lejre excavation sites and reconstruction project alongside other major Viking sites and museums. The trip to Lejre provided invaluable experience, as both stepping inside the reconstruction in progress and meeting with the researchers shaping the reconstruction provided extremely useful insight into the size and perception of the hall. Team members were also able to see and hold both artifacts and recreations of a variety of Viking era objects, most notably the Queens mead cup, which can be seen in the photo gallery below.
