True Vikings

Bengt-Erik Engholm & Jonna Björnstjerna

Everyone knows what a Viking is. A huge man with a beard, giant muscles and a big belly. Fair hair and blue eyes. He looks angry and has a long sword in one hand and an ax or a large shield in the other. He stands at the stem of a Viking ship and is just about to charge ashore to frighten people to death and plunder. But is that image true?
When you read about things that happened a long time ago, you need to know that it is not always true. Much of what is told is what archaeologists and scientists believe. Perhaps new facts arise and then the history changes. You have to play detective, that’s what’s so awesome with history.

In True Vikings you will learn some of the things that we think that we know today about the people who lived in the north during the Viking age.
