I wonder what it was like living in a house made that way?
Yea, I think it was warm but dirty!
Vikings are a great choice for V!
My family has a long history in Swansea where I was born and it sems likely we are of Viking descent.Informative 'V's.
Thanks Ellen, I've come back from a visit to your interesting blog!
Hi Aileni, wonderful idea to have viking ancestors!
Oh this brings back the memories of when I learned this in school. Which was just umm.. not so long ago... =)Wonderful post... we cannot forget our Vikings... thanks for the lesson!
Michele thanks for the visit! The Vikings were fierceful, but left their traces all over Europe. We could learn a lot of them.
I love your post - very informative about the Vikings. I especially love how the women would have been a force to reckon with...ahead of their times by being the chooser and the "tosser outer." lol
Yes Leslie, they were very emancipated and strong. The Vikings claimed to have the first parliament in Europe and they were the first democrates too.
Love the sod house and the V posts. Great choice.
photowannabe, thanks for the visit and your comment.
The Vikings are fascinating. You've put a lot of work into your excellent slideshow. I loved it.
I should think the turf houses were warm but smoky.I live in Swansea, which is said to be named after a Viking, Sweyn.
Thank you Liz for this extra information!
Dragonstar I agree with you that the Vikings were really interesting people who had a great influence on our world.
Very interesting post!Very good choice for "V"-Wednesday!Over at San Francisco Bay Daily Photo, we have Visions of Hell!

These are great pictures and information. Chicago had a Viking ship on display so from childhood I have been fascinated by the idea of Vikings.
