Did you know?
When they weren’t pilfering and plundering, the Vikings actually did do a bit of trading! The harsh environment of Scandinavia, left the Vikings without a lot of the commodities from other parts of Europe, which they duly traded for. In return they could offer goods such as timber, weapons, whale and seal skins, furs and metals. The Vikings had no currency as such, and traded with silver, which was cut and weighed, to determine its value.
On a darker note, the Vikings were also keen traders of slaves. They prowled the coasts of countries, and would even venture inland, kidnapping poor unfortunates, whom they sold into slavery, in lands far from where they had been abducted!
