Help Wanted: Friendly Vikings

The Midgard Historical Center in Vestfold County, Norway, is seeking a few good Vikings to interact with visitors and create an authentic atmosphere.

Lars Kobro, Diretor of the Center, says he is looking for friendly Vikings, not the "wild, murderous looters who pillaged and burned through much of Europe," a claim Kobro said was "largely exaggerated in texts left by ancient English monks."
