In 1983 excavations began in Norway that uncovered the largest Viking house in the world. The discovery was of a chieftain's home 67m (220ft) long and almost 10m (33ft) wide built around 500 AD and rebuilt a couple of times around 700 AD extending the longhouse to a staggering 83m (272ft) long.

Viking women played a real role in society, running estates while their husbands were away. Viking women were allowed to divorce their husbands if he mistreated them or their children. She was also allowed to divorce if he was not a good provider, lazy, or if he was rude to her family. In most cultures of the time, only the men could decide if they were to divorce or not. Viking women served as an important member of society. In some cases, women are noted as even having gone into battle.
A dramatization of a Viking Warrior. The Viking warriors were seafaring people. Though many think of warriors as being violent people who raided and killed any town they passed by, many vikings were farmers, explorers, sailors, and traders in search of a better place to live. Viking mens duty in their family was to bring home food and money. They were supposed to take care of their family. (By Pablo Galeano)
