This clip details the history of the Vikings during the time period known as The Viking Age. It discusses their decentralized nature and explains their motivation for invading areas: fortune. It also demystifies the true nature of the Vikings: they are considered barbarians because of their willingness to destroy institutions and objects with religious value; however, they peacefully traded goods with countries and even protected the Byzantine emperors in Constantinople. The influence of the Vikings is still present today in the English language and the names of many locations in England.
