Do you know that the Vikings didn't just raid and drink mead, but also traded with nations around the world in a civilized fashion? Items from Asia and Egypt have been found in graves of folks long dead, who really are the last people you should be disturbing during their eternal sleep. Go ahead and wake up a Viking poltergeist to haunt you, that'll end well. The stuff is fascinating though and last year I finally got to see some of it in person when they did a traveling exhibit in New York. There was also a Star Wars costume exhibit as well, so we did both back to back as they are two of my favorite things in the world and them being in the same place at the same time was too much to pass up. By the end of it I felt like I had been in a mental car accident with how overwhelmed I was by it all.
