The 19th Viking Congress will take place 17-23 July 2021, with the Congress Tour on 24-27 July 2021. The programme will begin at Bangor University on the evening of Saturday 17 July, moving to Liverpool University on Tuesday 20 July, concluding on Friday 23 July. The Congress dinner will take place at Bangor.


There will be two excursions, one in North Wales to the island of Anglesey, and the other to Chester and Wirral on route from Bangor to Liverpool.

The Congress Study Tour will take place in the counties of Cumbria and Lancashire, well-known for their spectacular scenery (e.g. in the Lake District National Park) and strong Viking associations. It will be based at Lancaster University, and will involve site visits, interpretation and public engagement.


Further announcements, including a link to a new dedicated website, and a call for papers, will be made in late 2019/early 2020.
