Warrior Culture : Viking
Subculture : Viking Women
While spoken of often in myth and legend historical accounts of Shield Maidens are fewer and more controversial. That said considering the Vikings rather progressive views on eqality, their existence is assured. More recent examinations done on Viking burial sites suggests that Warrior Women may have been even more critical to that culture then ever before imagined. Beyond extensive roles in combat, Viking women were also involved in the leadership of society. Viking women also hold great status within the culture as wise women and witches. Norse women were also able to both own property, and instigate a divorce.
