Welcome to History »

Here you'll find photos from historical places but also facts about Vikings and swedish regent. You can also find references to UNESCO-sites we visited.

 

Vikings

The word Viking might come from the Old Norse word, vík, meaning "bay," "creek," or "inlet," Another explanation is that the term comes from old English, wíc "trading city" (Latin vicus, "village"). The medieval Scandinavian population, in general, is more properly referred to as Norse.
