A Flatpack History of Sweden

16. Viking Women Part One

September 6, 2020

We are back in Sweden and the rest of Scandinavia after our trip eastwards to look at the Rus. We are now starting a short series of episodes on the lives of women in the Viking age. We will look at everything they had to face in society in the next few episodes. This time we give an overview of all the things that these women would have got up to, including childbirth, running the farm, owning businesses and getting involved with politics and marriage.
