Taught by Professor Vejas Gabriel Liulevicius | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
While the story of Leif Eriksson and the Vikings is relatively well known, Professor Liulevicius takes you deeper into the question of why the Vikings, or Norsemen, explored, as evidenced by their broader culture of adventure and values that pressed them onwards in often violent ways.
