We are... a little bit Viking


Learning about Vikings was something I didn’t know I would thoroughly enjoy until I tried it as an optional module in first year. From depicting the many biases and perspectives towards the Vikings to the associations between Old Norse and Viking beliefs, there was always a topic, a quote, an image, or a historical object from every lecture that would fascinate and intrigue me to do further research on! I am excited to apply the knowledge I have gained to other medieval modules, and can’t wait to dive deeper into the Viking age in the remaining years of my degree!
