HIST 342. The Age Of The Vikings. 3 Hours.

This course looks not only at the "Viking Age" circa 780-1070 CE but also at the origins of the Vikings and their cultural contexts and legacies. It discusses Scandinavian society from late antiquity through the Middle Ages, exploring social structure, gender ideas and relations, religion and mythology, technology, politics and war, literature, and art. This course details Viking raids, expansion, and integration throughout Europe and examines modern literature and media to discover what "Viking" came to mean long after the Viking Age ended. Prerequisite: HIST 101, 102, 103, 104, 211, 212, or 215H or consent of instructor. EU/T.
