    The hair this year is getting too outlandish. What Viking woman had the time and talent to do all the fancy braiding? I think the hair stylists are just showing off because these new braiding styles are the new fad.

    Thank you for the podcast.  I especially love hearing about all the history that relates to the episode.  I just found you and will have to go back and listen to the previous podcasts.  I love the show.  My ancestors were Norwegian and it gives a glimpse of how they lived in the early times – how the buildings were, the role of women, the government etc.
