« back to classes page
Norse explorers, warriors, merchants and pirates, the Vikings raided, traded, explored and settled in wide areas of Europe, Asia and the North Atlantic islands from the late eighth to the mid-eleventh century. These Norsemen used their famed long ships to travel as far east as Constantinople and the Volga River in Russia, and as far west as Iceland, Greenland, and Newfoundland, and as far south as Al-Andalus in modern day Spain and Portugal. This period of Viking expansion forms a major part of the medieval history of Scandinavia, Great Britain, France and the rest of Europe. The connection between certain New Mexican families and the Vikings will be explored. A short film that will trace the history of these people will be shown. We will also discuss which families show the markers that are most identified with this ancient civilization.
