What is a Norse?

17 marzo, 2023

Norse refers to the people, culture, and language of the ancient Scandinavian region, specifically during the Viking Age from the 8th to 11th centuries. The Norse were skilled seafarers, warriors, and traders who established settlements and traded with other cultures throughout Europe, Asia, and North America.

They also had a rich mythology and religion, which included gods such as Odin, Thor, and Loki. The Norse language, also known as Old Norse, is the predecessor to modern Scandinavian languages such as Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian.
