Celts and Vikings – How did they Mix?

ID : 82334   
« back to classes page
Celts and Vikings were adjacent geographically but worlds apart in values. Between 800 and 1150 CE, Norse people “went a-viking” around Europe. Vig meant battle; the people from Norway, Sweden and Denmark explored, plundered, and traded for 350 years from the North Sea to the Black Sea. Using maps and history, Dr. Sutton will show the impact of Vikings on the Celtic islands of Britain and Ireland. Did Celtic knotwork originate in Scandinavia? Does your surname end in –son, meaning “son of”? Are red-haired Irish people descended from that Viking, Eric the Red? Learn more about the differences in these two cultures’ alphabets, magical systems, mythologies and zest for living.
