Appearance of the Vikings?
The men in the Viking age would wear a tunic with long sleeves and a pair of trousers with a leather belt. The ladies also wore a tunic with long sleeves, but had a under dress made from linen instead of trousers. The children would wear the same clothes as the grownups did.
Both men and women wore leather shoes, and if it was cold they would both use a cloak. Since colorful clothes was very expensive and a status symbol in the Vikings age, only the wealthy Vikings would wear colorful clothes, and the poor would only wear beige and browns clothes.
The religion of the Vikings
The Vikings also had their own religion, but if their religion had a name I don’t know. But what we do know, is they had many gods and goddesses. You may have heard of a few of them before, like Thor the god of Thunder, or Odin the all-father.
The Vikings had their own version of “heaven” they called it Valhalla, a place were the brave go when they die. Everyone else goes to Hel, Hel is ruled by a woman named Hel. You don’t necessary have to be evil to go to Hel when you die, you will go there even if you are not brave.
Today there are many new followers of the Viking faith, it has different names depending on where you live. In Iceland they call it Ásatrú, but in other countries it’s called “Asatru and Vanatru”, and some even call it Odinism, which in my ears sounds totally wrong, and sounds like you just believe in Odin. Ásatrú is not about just one god, it’s about all the gods.
