V is for Viking

Strictly speaking the Norse word vikingar is only applicable to men, however a new settlement also needed women which were usually taken from the local population. One of the jobs of the women in the camp was to make items of clothing and apparel - shoes hats and pouches, using any available material such as leather and fur.

  4. I enjoy visiting the York's Viking Centre some years ago.

  6. I like these kinds of reenactments. We have the Renaissance Faire here every spring, though I don't think it's 100% accurate. Fun, though.
