Vikings Map The time range for the Vikings was from the late Eighth century to the mid Eleventh.
<ul><li>A Viking was known for being a pirate around Europe. They would row on huge boats that were made out of wood that looked like big canoes with lots of people on each one. They were trying to rule as much land as they could in Europe and were successful and </li></ul><ul><li>started in the eighteenth century to the </li></ul><ul><li>eleventh century. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Vikings Social structure conformed in to the indo-European pattern where people were split in to classes. There was the class of the rulers and the classes of the free and unfree. Lowest in the social ladder were the thralls. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The Viking houses would usually contain three generations of a family in one house. If they were healthy they would also have servants. They would have other buildings near the farmstead for storage and making tools and for Servants as well. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The wealthy Vikings had a bigger farmhouse with extra and nicer rooms also they had extra and larger quantities of food than the peasants. The wealthy had more privileges than the less wealthy and were able to live a better life. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The Vikings ate two meals a day, one usually consisted of some kind of meal or porridge. The mainstay of a everyday meal was a huge kettle of stew containing what ever vegetables or meats that were available. The bread that would have eaten was made in great quantity and variety, both flat and risen. Freshwater fish such as Salmon, Trout and Eels were widely eaten. Though is coastal areas there were Shellfish and </li></ul><ul><li>Herring. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The Men would provide food by going out and hunting for food for the family and the women would cook and look after the children which is like today for most people. Most Viking would farm and keep cows, sheep, chicken and goats and harvest barley and many different sorts of Vegetables. The Vikings would have to work very hard to keep a good farm so the kids would not go to school but work for the family. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The man most ask the woman's father if he can marry her at first. The men would then have to pay the wives father very big amounts of silver. The priest would tell lots of spells to let them have children. Then the feast would go on forever. Then one of them would have to be moved into the other persons farmstead. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The Vikings did not have any Hospitals and that meant that they would have to suffer threw childbirth on there own with there family without having a doctor. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Most Viking children would have to be with there parents and travel everywhere with them and have to fight when they are ten. If the children are sick or disabled when they are born they get left outside to die. The chance of a Viking child to live until they are five is one in five chance. The children will have to be with there parents the whole time with all of the travelling on the boats. </li></ul>
<ul><li>For childhood in Canada we have a really good life because we get to go to school and hang out with your friends but for the Vikings they would have to go with there mom and dad from place to place with mom on the big boats and do lots of chores with there family. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Viking children did not leave home to attend school they learned a simple education at home usually taught by a parent. When the children got older they learned how to help their parent with daily chores. The boys would help on the farm or learn a craft and the girls would learn to cook and sew. Poetry and music were taught to children of wealthier families. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Some of the Vikings believed in something called the Morse Mythology. The Morse Mythology flourished in the Vikings age and followed in to the Christianization of Scandinavia during the High Middle Ages in to Nordic Folklore and some of its aspects still flourish today. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Thor was a very common god for the Vikings. He was the god of thunder, sky, and law. Thor was the son of Odin who is the chief god </li></ul><ul><li>Thor was always armed with his </li></ul><ul><li>magical hammer that conserved </li></ul><ul><li>thunder in it. Thor married Sif who </li></ul><ul><li>was known for her wonderful gold </li></ul><ul><li>hair. He was a very powerful god </li></ul><ul><li>and was very powerful if you eve </li></ul><ul><li>got in a fight with him or war </li></ul>
