Viking Vlog 4: Who Were the Jomsvikings?
In this episode, I give a 10,000-foot view of the Jomsvikings, a warrior society from the Viking Age who have captured the imaginations of many around the world. I discuss what we know about them and why, and some of the problems historians have in verifying what we think we know.
As promised, here is a link to the Saga of the Jomsvikings, translation by Lee Hollander: https://amzn.to/3dNEn1c
As discussed in the video, if you have burning questions about Viking history, ask away in the comments below, and I may use your question for a future Viking Vlog.
