The Vikings are famous for their violent raids on Anglo-Saxon monasteries, incredible shipbuilding skills and general brutality. They are less famous, perhaps, for their artistic talents. Yet the precious fragments of art that survive from the Viking Age portray a far more mysterious side to Viking culture. From the so-called 'gripping beast' motif of the Oseberg wood carvings to the abstract animal ornamentation that adorns Viking jewellery, Viking art is defined by beautiful intricate artistic styles that are distinctly Scandinavian yet also show the Vikings' interaction with other cultures, culminating in their conversion from paganism to Christianity. To coincide with the first major exhibition on Vikings at the British Museum for over 30 years, Andrew Graham-Dixon invites viewers to explore and admire the splendours of Viking art.
In which John Green teaches you about Vikings! That's right, one of our most requested subjects, the Vikings, right here on Crash Course. So what's the deal with Vikings? Well, the stuff you've heard about them may not be true. The Vikings weren't just pagan raiders striking terror into the hearts of defenseless European Christendom. They were some of the greatest travelers of their time, and they weren't always traveling to steal. In a lot of cases, they were traveling to trade. John will teach you about Viking trade goods, Norse Mythology, and yes, there will be blood, guts, and dragons. OK?

"VIKINGS" features interactive displays and nearly 500 original art and artifacts from the collections of the Swedish History Museum – many rarely seen outside of Scandinavia – that provide a window into the lives of these legendary explorers, artisans and craftspeople whose culture flourished between the 8th and the 11th centuries. The exhibition is presented in sections that work together to explore the rich and often misunderstood history of Viking life and culture. In this exhibition, visitors will learn: The central role women played in Viking society, how religion shaped their thinking, and how Viking art and culture shaped Europe and beyond. VIKINGS provides a richer perspective from which to view these epoch-making people. What emerges is a fuller understanding of Europe and the world that was influenced by and that influenced this complex and richly-layered society. Exclusive to the ROM, the exhibition includes a section on the Vikings in Canada that takes visitors back in time over 1,000 years and explores the Vikings footprint in Canada. This section of the exhibition dives into the archaeology and history of the Norse on our East Coast, with objects from L’Anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland; Baffin Island, Nunavut; as well as the (ROM’s) Royal Ontario Museum's, infamous Beardmore sword. The exhibition also features two reconstructed Viking boats, the 13 foot Arby (3.95 meters), and the 32 foot Eik Sande (9.75 meters). Both vessels have been faithfully re-created using Viking processes and materials, providing visitors with insights into Norse boat-building techniques, and the symbolism and mythology of their ships. The exhibition is a joint venture between and produced by The Swedish History Museum in Sweden and Museums Partner in Austria. The VIKINGS exhibit opens at the ROM on November 4th, 2017. #VikingsTO reporter: Ilona Kauremszky photos - edit - video: Stephen Smith music: Kevin MacLeod: http://incompetech.com/ http://twitter.com/mycompasstv http://www.mycompass.ca mycompasstv ~ travel + arts + lifestyle

Viking fight choreographers Kelle and Gernot Longbow reenact viking warfare in an authentic way. In this video they show you how. The Vikings claimed that their swords were indestructible. That's probably a bit of a stretch. But they must have been nearly indestructible to allow the Vikings to wreak so much havoc and destruction. This webisode is connected to our full episode Inside the Berlin Island Museums (Pergamon and Neues) where there is a longer segment on viking swords.

The Early Middle Ages, 284--1000 (HIST 210) In the first part of this lecture, Professor Freedman discusses the emergence of the Vikings from Scandinavia in the ninth and tenth centuries. The Vikings were highly adaptive, raiding (the Carolingian Empire), trading (Byzantium and the Caliphate) or settling (Greenland and Iceland) depending on local conditions. Through their wide-ranging travels, the Vikings created networks bringing into contact parts of the world that were previously either not connected or minimally so. Professor Freedman concludes the lecture, and the course, by considering what's been accomplished between 284 and 1000. Although Europe in the year 1000 experienced many of the same problems as did the Roman Empire 284 where we began -- population decline and lack of urbanization, among others -- the end of the early Middle Ages also arguable heralds the emergence of Europe and Christendom as cultural constructs and sets the stage for the rise of the West. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

First video about the Viking Art serie. Any doubt? Send me a message. Historia del Arte: https://namerethistoriadelarte.blogspot.com.es/ Land of the Art: https://www.facebook.com/landoftheart The Viking Art is developed in the Nordic countries and their areas of influence during the Viking era, between the VIII and XII centuries. It is part of the german zoomorphic style, developed from late Roman art influences, Celtic art, and motifs of the peoples of the steppes of Asia. Most of the best examples since the beginning of the Viking Age have been found in tombs, especially jewelry and weapons, while later the Viking Art is better represented in silver objects, in the development of cities, scandinavian and rune stones. Broa-Oseberg Style. From second half VIII century to half IX century. It takes the name from the tomb of a man in Broa, Gotland, Sweden, and the tomb of a woman in Oseberg, Norway. In Broa there were bronze pieces. In Oseberg was found the richest viking tomb. The woman was in a ornamented ship with funerary offerings. Animal era in ornamentation, with beasts. Oseberg Ship: a oak ship. Decorated with zoomorphic details with a post with dragon head. It had two skeletons, one to a woman of 70 years old and other of 30 years old. The identities are unknown, but there are some theories, since it can be the queen Åsa Haraldsdottir to a priestess, being the young one a person sacrified to accompany the other high rank person. There it was found also a chariot and a bed. Other decorative works: more pieces with zoomorphic and vegetal motifs.
