Who were the Vikings?

 

Vikings were also known as the Norsemen.

Norsemen means 'people from the North'

They were great travellers and sailed to other parts of Europe, where they traded, raided, and often settled.

Fatto interessante
To find out which direction to travel, Viking sailors would sometimes release ravens . The birds flew towards land and the longships followed them.

Fatto interessante
Viking longships often had a dragon's head at the front, which vikings hoped would keep evil spirits away.

Many Vikings were great travellers and sailed all over Europe and the Atlantic Ocean in their longships. Their longships could sail in shallow water which meant they could travel up rivers as well as across the sea.

The Vikings were also farmers, fishermen, trappers and traders. Viking craftsmen made beautiful objects out of wood, metal and bone; Viking women were skilful weavers, produced fine, warm textiles.
