University of Oxford Online Viking Course

The new University of Oxford online archaeology course “Vikings: Raiders, Traders and Settlers” is now open for registration.

The course overview states:

“Ravagers, despoilers, pagans, heathens - the Vikings are usually regarded as bloodthirsty seafaring pirates, whose impact on Europe was one of fear and terror. Yet these Vikings were also traders, settlers and farmers with a highly developed artistic culture and legal system. This course uses recent findings from archaeology to examine these varied aspects of the Viking world.”

This course begins in September.
