Description

Christian Cooijmans of the School of Scandinavian Studies at the University of Edinburgh looks at the Vikings

From Golden Axe to Skyrim, the Vikings have been a well-represented, recognisable subject of video game design for almost forty years. Bridging the gap between history and popular culture, Chris Cooijmans will consider how these Scandinavian seafarers and their society have thus far been (mis)represented by this rapidly-evolving creative medium, horned helmets and all.
