Vikings were some of the most brutal, talented warriors in all of time. Their conquests knew no bounds, and they would gladly rape and pillage their way across the world, as long as their boats were capable of reaching the intended target. Most people believe Vikings wore horned helmets, for example, but that is actually completely false. They had their own unique sets of armor, which stood out on the battlefield. Here are ten insane things the world has forgotten about the Vikings.

Clean People

Despite being known as brutal raiders, Vikings were actually an incredibly clean race of people. Archeological dig sites in their areas have discovered tweezers, razors, and even combs to keep themselves clean.


Bath Time

Keeping with being clean, Vikings also bathed at least once per week, which is far more than most European societies during the time period. Vikings were known for their long hair, so they certainly wanted it looking good.
