FUN TRIVIA: 

Viking Warrior Necklaces were worn by many with their various symbols.
Hailing from the countries of Scandinavia, the rugged Vikings or Norse grew up in countries that would have harsh and bitter winters, and the term Norse actually means ‘those from the North’. Maybe this climate helped them to become strong and hardy, the often bearded Viking warriors were known for their resilience.
Sweden, Norway and Denmark these were thought to be the main countries where a Viking would live but of course over time, the Vikings would travel much further afield, dropping anchor on foreign shores, bringing their own rules enforced by their axes and swords.

The Berserker

We see this woird in our favourite video games but never stop to think about where it came from.  The most feared of all the Viking warriors, the legendary berserker were thought to fight with no concern for their own safety or for others. Tales have been told of how the berserker would fight with no armour or clothing, causing mayhem and destruction in their wake.  The source of the Viking berserker rage or ‘berserkergang’ as it was known is the source of much contention. Some historians believe it was drug induced, either mushrooms or alcohol, other believe it was a state of mind achieved only by the berserker them self. Either way the Viking berserker was not someone to stay to close too, whether you were friend or foe.

Where did the Vikings end up today?

The Vikings to over Britain so almost one million Britons alive today are of Viking descent.  Where we get the mixed language Anglo-saxon which we know today as English. That means one in 33 men there can claim to be direct descendants of the Vikings. Around 930,000 descendents of warrior race exist today – despite the Norse warriors’ British rule ending more than 900 years ago.  But, keep in mind that the Vikings were never a pure race and neither were the Celts.  It was very common for male Vikings to intermarry with other nationalities, and even tales of how they loved to marry those of the Irish red haired beauties.  So there is a lot of mixed heritage in their DNA.

The Vikings that travelled east were called Russ and that is how Russia got its name.

Other Vikings (Norsemen) descendants today are in in Denmark, Greenland, Newfoundland Canada, Iceland, Great Britain, Ireland, Scotland, Normandy and Swedish parts of Finland, Estonia and Latvia.

Denmark, Greenland, Iceland, Great Britain, 

The Vikings were settlers who came from Scandinavia and travelled by boat as far as North America in the west and Central Asia in the east from about 700 AD to 1100. The word “Viking” meant “pirate raid” in the Old Norse language that was spoken in Scandinavia around the same period.
