Now, archaeologists and chemists from the National Museum of Demark have studied the colour use of the Viking era, and by means of chemical analyzes of color pigments on different findings and a collection of existing knowledge in the field, they have succeeded in finding out what the Viking colours looked like.

The colours are now available to everyone in the form of a colour palette, as archaeologists thought that others might also be interested in making use of the Viking colours. You can read more about the project on the National Museum’s website.
