Happy Friday: (Female) Viking Edition

Happy Friday everyone!

So on a pretty awesome note, a recent archaeological study found that female Viking warriors were a (really) a real thing. Apparently when the burial grounds of viking warriors were studied, they just assumed if the remains had a sword and shield, it was a male.

But hold on there, friend:

“By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”

Personally, I think that’s pretty flippin’ sweet.

Check out the article and let me know what you think- otherwise, have a great weekend everyone!
