  1. According to New Research, Viking Women Explored Just as Much as Men

    The family that stays together possibly slays together.

    Earlier this year we were saddened to realize that, upon closer examination, the Internet's belief that half of all Viking warriors were women was not as justified as we'd hoped. But, according to a new study by Erika Hagelberg of the University of Oslo, the life of the average Viking woman may have been far radder than historians think!

  2. Sorry, but That Study Doesn’t Say Half of Viking Warriors Were Women

    Lady Sif is disappointed.

    The Internet has been enthusiastically trumpeting a "new" (it's actually been around for some years) study that shows that half of all viking warriors were women. Great, right? Not so fast, says Tracy V. Wilson of Stuff You Missed in History Class. She read through the whole study and found out that's not what it says at all.

  4. Comic-Con Interviews: The Cast & Creator of History’s Vikings Discuss Their Strong Female Characters


    As we continue to roll out our San Diego Comic-Con coverage we finally come to one of my favorites. Speaking with the cast of History Channel's Vikings already provided us with some amusing dialogue on baby goats but we also got around to speaking about more serious issues like women's representation on television. Spoiler: We might have had little hearts in our eyes for part of (or all) this interview.

    Totes McGotes.

    Yes, I had the opportunity to speak to the cast and creator of History's Vikings at San Diego Comic-Con, and the first question I asked Travis Fimmel (aka Ragnar Lothbrok) was about baby goats. I DO WHAT I WANT!

  7. What You Missed At SDCC: More Cosplay, The Casts of iZombie and Vikings, And More

    Something something extreme jealousy etc.

    The third day of Comic-Con is fully underway, and while things have gotten busy with all the press events and panels to attend, we've still got some cool pictures to show you from San Diego. Some are from our good friends walking to floor and checking out all the cosplay, and the rest are from Jill as she talks to actors and show producers in special fancy press areas. We can't decide where we should direct our jealousy. Probably everybody? Yes. Everybody.

  10. How the History Channel’s Vikings Inspired Street Style

    Not all that glitters is gold

    Vogue and Elle online run stories lately about how Game of ThronesSpartacus: Blood and Sand, and The Borgias impact runways. (Cue shots of models sashaying down runways in pseudo-medieval silks and "armor-inspired" leggings with only the most tenuous link to anything actually worn on the show.) “Get Cersei Lannister's Look” and “Gauzy Gowns Echo Spartacus’ Style” run the click bait captions. We can debate how much actually translates down into any literal street style; the real impact is subtler—maybe best demonstrated by fans of Vikings, on the History Channel.
