Daily Diversion: The Dark-Ages Domestic Drama Of “Viking Wives”

Despite what historians may tell you, it seems that not much has changed in household relations in the past 1,500 years. Why, even the housewives of the Norse sagas had their hubby problems (i.e. he comes home smelling of salmon), mead-drenched afternoons with their BFFs, frenemy encounters, and so on. The pelts may be thicker, the houses stonier, and the paybacks more vicious, but, essentially, Viking wives are just like you (or the Real Housewives you watch on TV, anyway). Just watch out for when they go berzerk.
