At the end of the 8th century, most scandinavian people were farmers, and had never fought in a war... Yet, news came from the south, that within less than 25 years, the frankish empire under Charlemagne had killed tenthousands of people, forced them into christianity, and tax servitude to the pope, and had conquered nearly all of Europe! And now the franks were heading north. Thus the time began that is misleadingly called the "viking age"!

Crone from Villa? A völva dressed as it is described in Eirik the Red's Saga, herewith Lauparen in Vestnesstraumen stream in the background. Drawing: Berge Hjørungnes.
