“Viking sites on this list include the archaeological remnants of the early medieval Vikings at home in Scandinavia as well as those of the Norse Diaspora, when hordes of young adventurous men left Scandinavia to explore the world. Beginning in the late 8th-early 9th century AD, these rowdy raiders traveled as far east as Russia and as far west as Canada. Along the way they established colonies, some of which were short-lived; others lasted hundreds of years before being abandoned; and others were slowly assimilated into the background culture. The archaeological ruins listed below are just a sample of the ruins of the many Viking farmsteads, ritual centers, and villages which have been found and studied to date.” http://ift.tt/2rdWKY0 (via http://ift.tt/2lc0kxt)
