Viking Vlog 9: Women of the Viking Age
In this video, I approach the topic of Women in the Viking in a very general discussion. I discuss some of the leading works on women of the Viking Age and broadly overview their approaches to the subject. In later videos, I will discuss more granular topics such as whether women fought as shield-maidens, how often they traveled with the men, etc, but the goal of this first video is to open the door for curious minds to start exploring the subject.
As promised, here are some links to the books I discuss in the video:
- Judith Jesch’s Women of the Viking Age: https://amzn.to/3a7z9KE
- Jóhanna Katrín Fridriksdóttir’s Valkyrie: https://amzn.to/2wwGB49
- Nancy Marie Brown’s The Far Traveller: https://amzn.to/2yai2dS
As discussed in my videos, 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.
