The Viking age, from around 800 AD to the late 11th century, is arguably the most exciting period in Scandinavian history. This thematic exhibit provides a philatelic account of everyday Viking life as well as of faraway Viking voyages. The exhibit was scanned in 2008 and includes 128 pages (eight exhibition frames) plus a number of extra pages. The larger version of the exhibit has been shown at the Swedish Postal Museum.
Gunnar Dahlvig (1929–2020) was the chairman of the Swedish Association of Thematic Stamp Collectors 1976–1988 and later the association’s honorary chairman. With permission from Gunnar’s family, the association shows some of his exhibits on Netex, as part of an exhibition in memory of Gunnar Dahlvig.
