|The Viking Vessel|
Sail the sea of the sink and conquer foreign kitchen tops.
Late in the eighth century Viking sea raiders from Scandinavia appeared suddenly in Northern Europe. They raided and plundered coastal communities for the next 150 years. The Vikings were known for their great seamanship and ferocity in battle. Witnesses claimed that Viking warriors would occasionally go "berserk" and attack with nearly inhuman zeal, oblivious to all danger. Such behavior was terrifying to behold and very difficult to withstand. The ability to go mad with battle lust was a powerful attribute during a period of widespread superstition.
Despite popular belief, Viking combat helmets never had horns; the horns were added by artists and opera composers centuries after the Vikings could... correct them.
