York students record Viking voiceovers

York students have recorded voice-overs for an upcoming exhibition at the Jorvik Viking Centre in the city centre.

A team of 12 MA and PhD students from the centre of medieval studies, recorded the voices in Old Norse under the guidance of Viking language and literature expert Dr Matthew Townsend.

The York Archaeological Trust are running the £1 million project and their Director of attractions, Sarah Maltby, promises “state-of-the-art technology” and “very convincing Vikings”.

Students from York will be able to catch the new project as of next Spring.
