This history tour tells the history of all Vikings and the age they lived in. Visit Arkils assembly site with us and learn about this exciting epoch in Swedish history.
Welcome to the Viking age! It is an age where Norse barbarians plundered Europe and brought fear to distant shores. Have you heard this before? Well, I’m not surprised. This view of the Viking age is correct, even if often exaggerated by some Anglo-Saxon 8th century historians. Vikings are the ethnic groups that spoke Scandinavian languages. They plundered in England, Francia, along the Russian rivers and more kingdoms.
Either way, this is just one of many aspects of the Viking age. Most Viking men never plundered abroad but were simple farmers trying to survive for the day. Some Vikings were merchants who travelled both short and long distances, locally and internationally. Half of the Vikings were women of course, who cared for the household and the children.
We will tell you about Viking assembly sites, Viking laws and customs, Viking religion, paganism and Christianity. You will also learn of Viking ships and seafaring and Viking runes and language.
Come travel back 1000 years in time. We look forward to guiding you on an excursion away from the busy modern city of Stockholm to a place older than the Swedish capital!
