The Vikings

Viking Warrior with HelmetThe Vikings inspired terror across northern Europe during much of the period from 700 to 1000 A.D., but much of what many people believe about the Vikings is the result of myth and tales that were told about the fearsome warriors. Did you know that the Vikings were dedicated farmers, or that Vikings visited North America almost 500 years before Christopher Columbus

Vikings invaded France, and their descendants were the Normans who ultimately  conquered England in 1066. Other Viking groups traveled into Russia and as far south as the Mediterranean.

The History Channel series "Vikings" has popularized Viking History and brought characters such as Ragnar Lothbrok, Ivar the Boneless, Bjorn Ironside,  and Count Rollo to broader attention.
