Vikings – Scandinavian sailors of the early Middle Ages, in the VIII – XI centuries they made sea voyages from Vinland to Biarmia and from the Caspian to North Africa. Most of them were free peasants who lived on the territory of modern Sweden, Denmark and Norway, who were pushed beyond the borders of their native countries by overpopulation and thirst for easy money. By religion – the vast majority of pagans. Used their battle axes for both melee and throwing. Also, they had not only ordinary spears, but also lighter ones – throwing ones.
Swedish Vikings, as a rule, traveled east and appeared in ancient Russian and Byzantine sources under the name of the Vikings. The Norwegian and Danish Vikings, for the most part, moved west and are known by Latin sources under the name of the Normans.
