Nobody mentioned Vikingane - the Norsemen, the Viking comedy series from a couple of years back?

Here's the English trailer:

Well, that song or melody is not more viking than knights are viking. Year 1300 lots of things had changed and music was heavily influenced by the current trends in medieval music. The viking age was long past and if you would ask about vikings people would just look strangely at you and shake their heads.

Then they may just kill you because you were a stranger and you better be sure. Talking about pirates and being from far away. Anyway, there was no real penalty for killing someone far of like an englishman in at least Sweden back then.

Yep, the thought crossed my mind that 1300 wasn't exactly the Viking Age.  Oldest known Norse song, and provided in 4 takes on it.  If anyone knows of a real Viking tune, that'd be news, them being all cultured killing people and pillaging stuff. :icon_wink: :icon_lol: :engel:

Here is an actual work from the Viking Age (ca. 850) - but not from Vikings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32VFBeqNQbQ

Summa pia gratia nostra conservando corpora et custodita, de gente fera Normannica nos libera, quae nostra vastat, Deus, regna.


(Our supreme and holy Grace, protecting us and ours, deliver us, God, from the savage race of Northmen which lays waste our realms>)

Aah the good old days. (Just playing my stereo typical Scottish/Irish traditional thoughts that any good Scott would spout off about)😺

The excavation of that ship above has been completed.

And here is a related video with some nice animation regarding the area, including comments regarding the various remains of long houses that have been found there, and also various burial mounds ...
