Vikings: Fact or Fiction

The Goodrington Arm Ring

Challenge what you think you know about the Vikings with a new myth-busting exhibition at Torre Abbey, in collaboration with York Archaeology, the people behind JORVIK Viking Centre in York.
‘Vikings: Fact or Fiction’ is an exciting exhibition designed to uncover some of the misconceptions we may have about the Vikings.
As part of the exhibition, Sound Communities was commissioned to create a soundscape, that used field recordings made on location at Goodrington beach, to help tell the story of the Goodrington Arm Ring and its journey to being washed up on the shore.
The soundscape forms part of the exhibition and acts as a resource for the creative writing resource pack: Waves Of Imagination. This was created in collaboration with The Writers’ Block and will act as an imaginative, immersive starting point, to get young people writing.
