The violent and predatory society of Dark Age Scandinavia left a unique impact on the history of medieval Europe.

For those living outside Scandinavia, the Viking Age effectively began in 793 with an attack on the monastery at Lindisfarne.

Denmark is the country of the moment. Recently named the happiest nation in the world, it?s the home of The Killing and Noma, the world?s best (and most eccentric) restaurant.
