Some of the great things the Vikings gave us...
- Very Cool LongShips "drakkar" meaning Dragon in Norse and tonnes of Nautical knowledge
- Wednesday, was named for Odin
- We also have loads of literature like Beowulf*, and the Volsunga Saga (from which we have Sleeping Beauty)
- Mead! (not that I drink but the idea of drinking it from a Horn is still fun)
* Note Beowulf is actually an Old English poem based on Myth which was passed down through the Oral tradition. Much like the Trojan War in The Iliad was to Homer.
