Our Viking journey brought together students, faculty, and collaborators across continents, in some ways not unlike many journeys of the Viking Age. And yet a journey can also be a parting of ways, and all who were involved in this course drew takeaways of their own. To capture a snapshot of these divergences and encourage students down the paths of their own choosing, the final project allowed students to present a story of the Viking Age that they chose to tell. A selection of those stories are available here.
