Vikings? No, Scandinavians! Renowned merchants who had trading networks from the Baltic Sea to Constantinople! Simple farming folk who valued good land and built houses with roofs of turf! And oh, sometimes they’d get together in heavily armed groups and sail across the North Sea and up a river to murder some neighbors and take their wealth...that’s when they were “vikings”. Is that so wrong? Yes, yes it is - and in this episode, Ken and Glen discuss contrasts of Viking Myth and Scandinavian Reality.
