Membership & Payments


Membership of the Viking Society is open to anybody with an interest in the medieval North. Members are welcome to attend the three annual meetings of the Society, and to bring guests. They receive the annual issue of Saga-Book and other occasional publications at no additional cost. Members can buy Viking Society publications at a low cost, usually half the retail price (see our Publications page). Members are also entitled to borrowing rights at the library of University College London: see Learned Society Members for information and instructions for joining.
