  Viking Food Thursday 16 January 2003  
Yorkshire Viking Festival re-enactment
A thousand years ago one of the biggest Viking invasions in history was in full swing and our clearest image of the period is of hoards of rampaging men - so what kind of lives did Viking women lead?

The next few weeks sees a series of festivals, viking re-enactments & feasts in Shetland and York to mark the rich Viking heritage of the north.
Lesley Hilton has been speaking to Sheryl O'Connell festival organiser, and to Christina Lee, a lecturer in Old English and Viking Studies at the University of Nottingham.
