Norse Mythology,Vikings

Viking History (Denmark). 'The Vikings were not just plunderers but successful traders, extraordinary mariners and insatiable explorers. Getting a feel for the Viking era is easy, whether visiting the ship-burial ground of Ladby, the Viking forts of Zealand, the longship workshops at Roskilde or the museums that seek to re-create the era with live re-enactments.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/denmark

Vikings (Sweden). 'There are still real, live Vikings, and you can visit them at one of Sweden’s most absorbing attractions. An evocative ‘living’ reconstruction of a late–Viking Age village, Foteviken Viking Reserve was built on the coast near the site of the Battle of Foteviken. You can tour all of these, check out the great meeting hall, see a war catapult and buy Viking-made handicrafts.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/sweden/skane/sights/historic-site/foteviken-viking-reserve
