« back to classes page
The Vikings (from Old Norse víkingr) were the Norse explorers, warriors, merchants and pirates who raided, traded, explored and settled in wide areas of Europe, Asia and the North Atlantic islands from the late eighth to the mid-eleventh century. These Norsemen, using their famed long ships, traveled as far east as Constantinople and the Volga River in Russia, and as far west as Iceland, Greenland, and Newfoundland; as far south as Al-Andalus (most of modern day Spain and Portugal). This period of Viking expansion – known as the Viking Age– forms a major part of the medieval history of Scandinavia, Great Britain, France and the rest of Europe. The connection between certain New Mexican families and the Vikings will be explored. A short film that will trace the history of these people will be shown. We will also discuss which families show the markers that are most identified with this ancient civilization.
