731 Steinbach Nutcracker Viking
Hello, I am the Viking.
It is generally thought that
Christopher Columbus, as Spaniard, discovered America in 1492. As a
matter of fact, however, it was the Vikings (Normans) with their
characteristic dragon-like ships made of oak. The famous battle shelds
which hung outside served to raise the Dollbord. These magnificent
vikings set off on their faroff journeys from the European North Sea
coast, Denmark and Scandinavia to fight wars and make trade.
Eric the Red came to )Vinland (now
North America) via Iceland in 982. Leif Erikson followed in 1000. What a
fantastic achievement to cross the Atlantic with a combination of
sailing and rowing boats!
But the Vikings also advanced to the
south and east, as wel as west. Sicily, Southern Italy and Lombardy were
all firmly in their grip. — In the east there are settlements and
towns all along the Baltic Sea coast.
The Vikings founded the dominion
Nowgorod and in 864 Kiew on the Dnjepr. They travelled down the Volgato
the Caspian Sea and even as far as Baghdad.
Your Viking-nutcracker promises you
also such wonderful and successful voyages.
