The vikings settled in Greenland at the end of the 9th century. Their colonies flourished for over 400 years before the Greenlandic vikings suddenly disappeared. Today we don't know what happened to them. Some say they killed each other. Some say they fled to Scandinavia after a plague devastated them. We also don't know how far their explorers reached. Sagas describe a colony in North America known as Vinland. But it's unclear where Vinland actually was.
Ulfberht swords are a mysterious collection of viking swords. They were forged using crucible steel, which was first created in the 18th century. Or at least, that's when history thought crucible steel was created. Clearly the Vikings were using the steel one thousand years before this to make their Ulfberht swords. It's unknown how this was possible for them.
Ragnar Lothbrok is known to viewers of the history channel show Vikings. But you might not be aware that he's a Norwegian folk hero. Dozens of Sagas and poems tell of Ragnar's raids in England and France. The only problem is we don't know if he even existed.
