Life was hard for the Vikings. Not many lived past the age of 40. They had few medicines, so a lot of people died of diseases. They had a lot of wars.
Food was hard to find in winter, and people were often hungry. The weather in Scandinavia was cold and windy. But the Vikings still lived good lives. They were talented craftspeople and smart merchants. They were hardworking farmers who produced enough food, clothing, and tools for their families. Let’s visit a Viking family now. They’re hard at work, doing some of the many chores around the farm and household.
