Scandinavian is a word used to describe the general area and culture of northern Europe. The name is associated with the surrounding countries of Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Sweden.
The Viking Age is one of many interesting periods of Scandinavian history, when Norsemen (north Germanic men) would conquer, raid and destroy European societies. These barbarians from towns of Scandinavia plundered their way through the 18th century. However, in the late 1890s, they were finally recognized for their artistry, technology, and seamanship.
