Was there a Viking Age in Norway — 2000 years before the Vikings?
It may be that people from the North went to the Mediterranean with "Viking ships" as early as 3000 years ago.
Written in the 1380s in Iceland, the Flateyarbók chronicling Norwegian history never made it to Norway. Some 600 years later a Norwegian king has finally received the book, in Norwegian. An English translation is also on the way.
