Episode 4 – The Vendel Period

Direct Downloand S01E04 – The Vendel Period

The Vendel Period – In this episode I’m going to give as detailed a description I can of the Vendel Period and why it had such a large impact on what became the Viking age.
It will be a primer to give newcomers a fair idea of how some of the seeds of the viking age came to be.
It’ll be followed by an episode about The Rus Vikings and then The Varangian Guard.
