Video Responce - Fedor Balayev

The video we watched in class on Monday about the history of the Vikings was exciting to watch. What interested me the most was the archeological sites revealed about their civilization and how people lived. What was neat to hear was one of the scientists comment on how some of the tools (haircomb in this case) have changed, or better, evolved, from different time periods. The Vikings (it seems) were proficient tool makers and this discovery aids to show the evolution, thereof. Maybe not as impressive than Egyptian or Chinese civilizations' of earliear times, but nevertheless. Some of the jewlery seemed pretty desireable to own even today. Lastly, I thought it was incredible how the scientists were able to construct a 3D computer model of the old Viking village based on the rotten tree fragments found underground.
