05-04-2024 • 40 mins

We think we know the Vikings, but how well do we really know them?


From the insignia we think they wear, to the names they call themselves and the way they spoke to each other, there's a lot to uncover.


Joining Kate today is Dr. Caitlin Ellis, historian and Associate Professor at the University of Oslo, to take us back to this world and find out more.


This episode was edited and produced by Stuart Beckwith. The senior producer was Charlotte Long.
