Music as a mirror of society

Music has always meant a lot to us. Artists have been inspired to write music that makes people feel different emotions. Music is used for both happiness and sorrow, or as a reaction to different problems.

The music of the Viking Age

Song and music played an important role in the Viking Age. There was music for celebration, when children were put to bed, or when heavy work was done. The Vikings used musical instruments in war. Many of their instruments have been discovered. The Vikings played music on bronze lur horns, bone flutes and goat horns.
