Vikings transports us to the brutal and mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok, a Viking warrior and farmer who yearns to explore - and raid - the distant shores across the ocean.
The Norse people did not actually refer to themselves as Vikings as an ethnic or national identity. Viking was a profession and was the term for the act of raiding across the sea or a person participating in such an activity.
Forgive me Floki. I know I should trust you but I need proof.
King Horik: Yes, prove to me I can trust you. Prove to me you are on my side.
Floki: How can I prove it?
King Horik: Kill someone. Someone who matters.
Most historian hold it very likely that the Norse had contact with the Anglo-Saxons in the later part of the 8th century and the existence of England was widely known to them, unlike how they are portrayed in this show. Contact and trade with Anglo-Saxons is actually a likely explanation for the Vikings ability to locate monasteries such as Lindisfarne.
