But they would've raped and plundered people, surely! They can't take that away from us. :(

I read about how they were among the most cleanliness of the people from that era , I did not know if it were true or not , suppose I have my answer now . It is funny how myths twists up so much of the truth from the past..

I'm just grateful that Vikings are my ancestors and that we share a bloodline. Well the Swede and Dane Vikings :-)

It gives me something to tell my future grandkids.

Did the Vikings actually discover America first rather then Columbus? I thought Leif Erickson landed in Nova Scotia.
