The Legendary Viking Age

The Viking age is a period in European history that is associated with the Scandinavian Norsemen. Known as Vikings, these seafaring warriors pillaged and raided settlements throughout Europe between the 8th and 11th centuries.

Known for their skill in battle and their ruthlessness in war, Viking stories are full of heroism and conquest As such, the Vikings were a force to be reckoned with as they conquered vast territories and established new kingdoms.

The Vikings were expert sailors and navigators who traveled far distances in their longships. They were also skilled metalworkers who produced beautiful jewelry and strong weapons including swords, armor, and shields.

While the Viking Age ended around 1066 AD, today their spirit of adventure and determination is celebrated and will continue to inspire generations to come.

Historical Legends to Modern Day Sensations

The modern representations of Vikings in some recent media are a far cry from the real life of these historical figures.

In most cases, the Vikings are portrayed as burly, bearded men with horned helmets, who are nothing more than bloodthirsty barbarians. While there is some truth to this portrayal, it does not do justice to the complex and fascinating culture of the Vikings.

In reality, the Vikings were highly skilled people, who were known for their artistry and their naval prowess. They also had a rich spiritual life, which is often ignored in favor of violence and brutality.

Fortunately, there are a few TV shows and movies that have tried to portray the Vikings in a more accurate light. The History Channel's "Vikings" is a good example of this, as is the movie "Northmen – A Viking Saga".

These productions help to dispel some of the myths about the Vikings, and they provide a more nuanced view of this fascinating culture.
