Modern historians know this, but to repeat for the rest of you: 1) "Viking" was a job, not a people 2) The Norse had no concept of "racial purity" or "race" like we do 3) The Norse would have looked racially diverse to us Nazi medievalists get fucked.
Nice piece on the Viking genomics paper that was published in Nature today.
‘Viking’ was a job description, not a matter of heredity, massive ancient DNA study shows
So, it looks like the Vikings were a social construct. Can folks stop complaining about representation of people of color in Europe-y fantasy now please?
