Join us this month as we tour the Museum of Cultural History at the University of Oslo in Norway. We will get to view the exhibition; Fabulous Animals – from the Iron Age to the Vikings. This tour will take you on a journey, a Scandinavian safari, to meet some fabulous animals that the people of Scandinavia admired. You will find animal motifs, hidden in their jewelry and  weapons, in their houses, and later in their churches. The animals in turn, gave people, protection, courage and strength. Enter a world where the relationship with animals was completely different from today.
