Vikings are everywhere in pop culture but how much do we really know about them? How can we separate fact from fiction? Join historian Terri Barnes for a discussion about several of the most popular myths and misconceptions about those intrepid Nordic people we call “Vikings.” She’ll set the record straight with the most up-to-date research and information available. You’ll never see Vikings in the same way again.

Meet your instructor, Terri Barnes

Terri Barnes is a medievalist historian from Portland, Oregon, who has been teaching for 20 years. Her primary area of historical research and teaching is medieval Northern Europe, with particular emphasis on the history of the Nordic world during the Viking Age. She is History faculty at Portland State University and Portland Community College. History is her passion, and she counts herself fortunate to have a career where she can share it with people every day through the classroom, public speaking events, and social media.

She has a popular podcast, Vikingology: The Art and Science of the Viking Age, where she and her cohost interview top scholars about all things Viking, and she can also be found on her YouTube channel Shieldmaiden in the Kitchen where she combines her love of food, cooking, and history. When she’s not working she can be found traveling to historic places – usually somewhere Vikings went – or going for a run.
