Quiz! Are these 'facts' about the Vikings true or false?

The feared Scandinavian Vikings have been a staple of books, TV series and films, with their iconic horned helmets, flowing beards and insatiable thirst for battle.

Even the Viking gods are still iconic today, with a little help from Marvel comics and films, which have ensured many of us are very familiar with Thor, Odin and Loki.

But how much do you really know about the people who lived in Scandinavia and sailed huge distances from their homeland from around 800 AD to 1066?

Our 15-question multiple choice quiz starts off easy with some very basic questions you should be able to answer based on general knowledge (and Marvel film knowledge!)

Each question is in True or False format (and we offer extra info in the answer where it’s needed).

Stick with it, and it gets harder, with some deliberately tricky questions thrown in later on.

Test your Viking knowledge below!
