Vikings Were People Too: Growing Up in the Viking Age

with Terje Leiren

7pm

Short, snappy, entertaining: Scandinavian 30 is a series of free, thirty-minute talks by UW
Scandinavian Studies faculty held once each
month at the Nordic Museum. Grab a drink
and find out what you really need to know
to understand Scandinavia!

Perceived as violent raiders descending with a fury, the Vikings’ human side has largely been neglected. But Vikings were people too! Join Professor Leiren as he explores what it was like to grow up in the Viking Age.

Following the lecture, the board of UW’s Scandinavian studies department will host a reception, catered by City Catering. Cash bar provided.
