Hurstwic Special Advisors

Hurstwic is honored to have a number of special advisors: experts in various fields of Viking studies who have helped us with our research in the past, who have appeared in our films and training videos, and who have generously shared with us their specialized knowledge.

We are truly grateful to them for their help in the past, and for agreeing to be available to us for future projects and research programs.
