A people from Norway, Sweden and Denmark the Vikings raided and plundered leaving most of Europe at their mercy. The Primary weapon of the Viking was the sword. Swords of the is period were much shorter than they would become in the middle ages, but they were also much more brutal. The shorter sword was designed to be used one handed and for slashing, not stabbing. They were designed to be wielded single-handed to keep one hand free for a shield. Typically, blades ranged from 24 to 36 inches long, but often reached from 27.50 to 31.50 inches.
