Ahh the Vikings... Glory in Valhalla! The Vikings were (and still are) some of the greatest warriors of all time. Their skills with an axe, a shield and a sword were legendary. Viking swords are very similar to the Roman Spatha and it is known that it is where they are derived from. Early Viking swords are also known as Carolingian swords while later versions are known as Norman swords. Generally, owning a sword as a Viking was a status symbol as well as a weapon.
