What do you think of when you hear the word Vikings? (and we’re not talking about the football team) Do you think of warriors, or maybe you think of explorers? Do you think of merchants or perhaps poets? Well, Vikings were all of these things and many others like scientists, farmers, and fishermen. We sometimes think of them tough, mean, and strong. They are still thought as great warriors but they were also known for their love of exploration. They were not afraid to explore the open oceans. In the Schoolblogs.net Network Hot List, you will be the explorer on the world wide web (the Internet) and learn more about Vikings. Go the following websites and learn all you can about these strong and courageous people.
