Description: Today we are joined by Dr. Arthur Herman, New York Times best selling author of Viking Heart: How Scandinavians Conquered the World to talk about how and why the Scandinavians of the Middle Ages took to the seas as raiders and traders. We discuss some of the cultural, technological and strategic innovations that turned everyday Danes, Swedes, Norwegians and others into the most efficient warriors of their times and how those aspects carried through history.
