The Vikings burst onto the European scene by sacking the monastery of Lindisfarne in northern England in 793, and they remained a threat to many parts of the continent till the end of the twelfth century. This course will cover in traditional style most of their features from their trading to their plundering, from their fighting to their settling, from their culture to their customs, dispelling a few myths along the way. We can also have a chat about the recent T.V. series on them, and how accurate it is!!!
