Viking History

Norse tattooArticles under Viking History category on this site deal with historical events related to the Viking Age in Scandinavia, England, Ireland, Scotland and other lands reached by Norse merchants and warriors. They left lasting signs of their presence from Athens to North America, often by fire and sword but also as peaceful traders willing to integrate into the cultures they met. New aspects of Viking history are often revealed by archaeological finds related to Norsemen. This category thus lists articles on archaeology, events, news and publications on Viking History. Comments are very welcome, as usual.
