Description

In light of the ongoing discussion about Viking women warriors in both academic and popular imagination, there is a need for a more nuanced and multidimensional approach to women's roles in Viking Age society. This session will focus on women who traveled, who crossed boundaries, who settled, worked, helped build towns, establish local identities, and more. Mary A. Valante
