Viking response by Jay
I think the video was really informative about the Vikings. It certainly cleared up many of the misconceptions I had regarding the Vikings, for instance that their helmets were not horned as previously seen in movies. Also, I was only aware of the Viking's brutality but after seeing the video, I am now aware of the fact that they were also traders and adventurers, and their cruelty were somehow exaggerated by the monks who suffered the most from their raids. I really enjoyed watching the video and it was certainly a nice way to learn!
