Most vikings lived in farm houses.They were made of timber
planks,woven branches with turf or thatched roofs.
In the middle of the room there is an open fire set to give
heat and light .Vikings build 'smithy's' they used iron tools and
utencils.They have holes in the tip of the roofs so when they are
cooking the steam will lead through the gaps.
The Vikings used to have jobs but most of them were really hard. The mother always had to stay at home and do the rest of the jobs. They had to teach their sons how to fish and fight and teach their daughters how to cook and do all the housework. Even the slaves had to clean.
For 300 years ,from the 8th to 11th centuries ,the vikings took the world by storm.In search of land,slaves,gold,and silver,These brave warrions And explores set sail from thier homes in norway , sweden,and denmark.They raided all across Europe, voyaged as far as baghdad. And even reached Amarica .
