The Vikings C.17.04.21

Vikings have an ancient history of being great warriors. They were thought of as to be depicted as adventurers. Their code of dress was the wearing of helmets sporting two long horns.

The interesting thing is there is no evidence to support this portrayal of the long horned helmet. Archaeological excavations have never uncovered any such helmets.

It appears like many of fictitious history as in the supposed cup of Christ these ideas have originated from fiction novels. The idea of the two long horned Viking helmets comes from the works of a Swedish artist or from Wagner’s 1876 opera, in which the warrior wears this type of helmet.

It is fascinating how the arts have dictated the fictional writings into bogus history.

Happy Celeritism
