What Viking Hygiene Was Like

The Vikings – a group of exploring and raiding seafarers from Denmark, Sweden, and Norway – traversed the world from the eighth to the 11th centuries. As warriors, traders, and eventual settlers, the Vikings disrupted the lives of those groups they encountered while simultaneously facilitating cultural exchange and making an impression that was often less than positive.

    The Christian chroniclers held a grudge or predjudice against heathens/pagans, hence their dipictions can’t be wholly trusted.

      I believe so, there are often a bias.
      Danish historians started investigating and correcting Danish WWII history in the mid 70s, because of people writing their own “history”. Pretty much Danish good, German bad.

        Folks who have no stake in your folks past history/land/genetics should have no say in saying what did or did not happen. Localized is better than regionalized or globalized.

        This ties in with the modern rewriting of the past in the name of Political Correctness, etc. by a rootless cosmopolitan mindset/people.
