A Viking Helmet

As much as we wish it to be true, it is not. Vikings never wore horns on their helmets for either battle or ceremony.

The only helmets found to have horns on them at that time were from Britain.

The misconception has many possible sources. One of the most likely , monks at the time trying to make vikings more closely resemble the devil. The monks rather resented all of the murdering and pillaging the Vikings did.

    Hello,

    I’ve been reading this board for quite a long time. Recently, firefox tries to stop me from visiting – it says that this website is infected.

    Can you do something about it?

    Thanks in advance

      I will look into the problem as quickly as possible, thank you for bringing it to my attention. As a note though, I use firefox as well and that has not alerted me to anything, perhaps check your browser to see what is alerting you to a problem. Once again, many thanks.
