The Life of the Viking

– HBO-style og real style

Teacher: Søren Hviid Pedersen

On HBO and other streaming services, we are confronted with international series depicting the Vikings as a bloodthirsty and savage people, who never says no to send their fellow human beings to Valhalla! However, the Vikings were much more than just bloodthirsty warriors; they were also ordinary fishermen, farmers and traders, who lived an ordinary and peaceful family life with a wife and children.

In this course, we will try to give a more nuanced picture of the Viking and his world of gods, myths, ethics and honor and way of life.
