Trivia

There almost no evidence of what haircut the Vikings wore other than beards for the men and ponytails for the women (based on contemporary Norse art). Therefore the haircuts of several of the vikings where designed so that hair would not stick out beneath a helmet so enemies would not be able to grab a hold of their hair from behind. See more »

Goofs

The role of the Seer would in much more likely been held by a woman (a völva) in actual Norse society. See more »

Looks like a good voyage for History Channel's VIKINGS
6 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Viking era is an exciting one. I'm glad to see this series because too often of late, we are getting our history from film, not books, so perhaps a new generation can come to know this culture. We are getting a glimpse of a very unique, if savage way of life that helped shape Europe.

The series itself has a wealth of legend to draw from and fill several seasons. The series opens in 793 AD, however, Ragnar's fate is beyond that. Like Spartacus, he is a legendary figure and the writers of this series have a lot to play with in what was Europe's Dark Ages.

So far so good for this series. The first episode, Rites of Passage, is a good introduction. I am hoping that since it is the work of the History Channel that we will get some authenticity in this series and not just entertainment. Like I said, so far, so good.
