Polygon: Here's the thing. I like Vikings. And two Viking-esque events reached me this week, inspiring a third.
First, archaeologists studying the remains of Viking fighters who invaded England back in the 800s, found that half the warriors were women. If you weren't already impressed by these wonderful, savage bastards, you ought to be now. It's not like equal opportunities have been the norm in military careers down the ages. Everyone fought.
Second, The History Channel is showing extended trailers of its outstanding drama series Vikings, which features the best and coolest cast of fighting characters (including women warriors) pretty much ever and is the best non-20th Century historical drama on TV. New (spoilery) details about the third season, and some new characters, due to air next year, have emerged.
It's sorta based on real history and proves that the Vikings were the greatest.
Third, I'm asking the world of video games, right now, for a bad-ass role-playing game based on Vikings, preferably featuring the likes of Ragnar Lothbrok, Lagertha, Floki and Athelstan. This is something the world of entertainment requires.
