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 come along for a private viewing will be held on Wednesday June 21 from 5-6pm.
