    • Hey Alex,
      Good start on your research. I do not know what your research question is, so I don’t know where you are heading. It has been awhile since I have looked into Vikings, I do not have my sources. Something that I have found really interesting is the misconceptions about Vikings and the impact they have had on the Western World. The Viking Mythology is very diverse and unique as well. Vikings were the first to trade with Native Americans. Vikings are very diverse as well, so it might be wise to just focus on one group of vikings. Again I don’t know your research question. Good start. Keep an open mind to see if you find something more interesting about vikings.

    • I’ve never thought of the viking’s influence on the things you mentioned. It’s very interesting and there is a lot to be said about vikings as a whole. I think you picked an awesome topic to research. Eaters of the Dead by Michael Crichton is a more realistic version of the story Beowulf. Crichton does a really good job of giving an accurate portrayal of the viking way of life. It may help in your research but if not it’s a good read.

    I love this Andreas! At what point are we going to stop. You should look into the poaching of endangered species in countries like China. They sell the pelts and what not, and endanger species even further. Do you
