"The findings gave a unique understanding of life and death in this early Christian Viking community and indicated that it was common to suffer from dental caries, tooth loss, infections of dental origin and tooth pain. These Vikings also manipulated their teeth through filing, tooth picking and other occupational behaviors."

    The Sea Wolves: A History of the Vikings

    There is more to the Viking story than brute force. They were makers of law - the term itself comes from an Old Norse word - and they introduced a novel form of trial by jury to England. They were also sophisticated merchants and explorers who settled Iceland, founded Dublin, and established a trading network that stretched from Baghdad to the coast of North America.

    The Age of the Vikings

    A major reassessment of the vikings and their legacy

    The Vikings maintain their grip on our imagination, but their image is too often distorted by myth. It is true that they pillaged, looted, and enslaved. But they also settled peacefully and traveled far from their homelands in swift and sturdy ships to explore. The Age of the Vikings tells the full story of this exciting period in history.

    Oldest ship's grave in Scandinavia has been excavated in northern Norway (the region of Trøndelag, to be precise). The grave reveals that Scandinavians were building ships large enough for long-distance travels already around the year 700. This find also pushes the burial custom of burying people in ships significantly back in time. (Article in Norwegian.)

    The Waking of Angantyr by Marie Brennan is out today in the UK. It's historical fantasy set in the Viking era, brutal and a bit heartbreaking, but really good. Here's my review:

    Watched the movie THE VIKINGS (1958) starring Kirk Douglas, Tony Curtis, Ernest Borgnine, and Janet Leigh.

    Let's put it this way. THE VIKINGS did better with the knowledge about Vikings available in 1958 than THE NORTHMAN did with the knowledge available in 2022. In other words, I enjoyed this movie a lot more than I expected.
