Re: New Viking Research
Lena; I was not aware that you were on the Museum side of your career. No
wonder you know so much. Indeed history looks different from different
positions in the globe. Now perhaps you might enlighten others as to the
popular image of the Vikings being distorted by again popular images. What I
really would like to know is the cultural purpoose as taught in Sweden for
the Viking explorations. Was the purpose to simply find new lands, the
thrill of the seach, to claim new lands or what?
