When we consider of ancient warriors, we customarily consider of men.
Historical information seems to uncover that group were some-more expected to be concerned in fight than women, with some famous exceptions. It’s only how things were.
That’s why, when archaeologists stumbled on a Viking warrior’s grave in a 1880s, they suspicion they knew accurately what was going on. But DNA contrast is display that assumptions aren’t always correct.
The grave had swords, arrowheads, and dual sacrificed horses inside.
After new DNA tests, a investigate has found that this soldier was indeed female! This changes a diversion for archaeologists study Viking history.
Some Viking legends mentioned womanlike warriors, though people mostly suspicion they were done adult or embellished. Now they’re revisiting all their gendered assumptions.
