Did You Know?


The "fields of corn" metaphor is not necessarily related to the crop known as maize. Corn means the main grain grown in an area in Britain. We call maize "sweet corn" in the UK to distinguish it from wheat, barley (e.g. "John barley-corn") or oats. It is not therefore an anachronism in itself. See more »


References to "York" are incorrect through this whole story-line. When this was set, York would have been known as Ebacorum (Roman name) or more likely, Eoforwic (Anglian name). When the Vikings conquered Eoforwic they renamed it Jorvik, from which the name York was derived much later. The name York, explicitly spelled that way, was not used until the 13th Century.

Vikings is lost
23 April 2019 | by darkdementressSee all my reviews

Half way through season 4 this show got as lost as floki is. Random sex scenes that take up what could be actually story time,plots that make no sense and random character choices that have no point or meaning..Stop trying to be trendy and be true to what Vikings originally was!
