VIkings – Did they actually exist?
From Lindybeige :
The term ‘Viking’ is used inaccurately most of the time. Scandinavia was home to many Norse-speaking farmers, fishermen, carpenters, and cheese-makers, who spent between none and very little of their time carrying out sea raids.
Lindybeige: a channel of archaeology, ancient and medieval warfare, rants, swing dance, travelogues, evolution, and whatever else occurs to me to make.
So enlightening. I like the interesting takes Lloyd has on topics. Makes it seem so practical. You almoest forget you ever thought otherwise.
