Desperate Viking Housewives?

New evidence reveals that Viking housewives may not have been desperate at all, but may have traveled to new settlements with their husbands.

Archaeologists working on Viking DNA in the Shetland and Orkney Islands of Scotland have found that Viking explorers were quick to bring their families to new settlements in these areas. The study, conducted by researchers from Oxford University, concludes that families rarely ventured farther west than these areas, however.
