Facts are clouded by popular fiction series like "Vikings" & other media portraying Scandinavians of yore. So today a fellow Norseman help clarify the actual Viking history, culture, & religion. We review some main characters, events, & traditions, comparing them with reality. Some questions addressed: What basic misconceptions? Who was the Berserkers? Whence stem the genuine Vikings? Who went where? Any difference between Nordic countries? Which intoxicants was used? What do we know of their magic & paganism? Did anything survive? Is Norse & Hindu mythology related? When & how came Christianity? + Hear about the old Norse Martial Art!
