Viking Warrior Women

In our second episode in honour of Women’s History Month we explore the stories of Viking warrior women from saga literature as well as the women who chose the fates of those that died in battle: the Valkyries.
Lucas and Miranda talk about the role and characteristics of the Valkyries, prominent warrior women from the sagas, as well as archaeological evidence which some suggest may prove the existence of real Viking warrior women!
