The history of the ancient Scandinavian people is one that has kind of taken on a life of its own over the years. It's been dramatized and embellished to gain popularity, and here's the kicker, none of it was needed. Vikings were an incredible group of people who's influence is still heavily felt today in our modern world. They discovered America wayyyy before ol Christopher "Turns out I was a huge douche" Columbus and interacted with civilizations as far as North Africa. Their shipbuilding and seafaring is legendary and lets not even get started on their warriors. Hit that play button and strap in, to Valhalla we go.
