Viking Women in Runic Times: Women in the Viking age and medieval times played vital, multifaceted roles in daily life. Yet they seldom appear in historical documents or archeological records. Recent runic research has revealed a different story about women from all walks of life. Women were queens, pilgrims, and priestesses. They were also important in the conversion to Christianity.
Henrik Williams is an authority of Old Norse languages, and lectures on topics encompassing the Vikings, runes, Old Swedish and Old Icelandic. Awarded a 2015 Rudbeck medal for groundbreaking research, Williams is a scholar and Professor of Scandinavian Languages at Sweden’s Uppsala University.
