'Gaelic Viking' (Winter 2012 marlies|dekkers) takes its name from the fearless Viking warriors who set up camp on the Orkney Islands - set between Norway and Scotland. From the Scottish influence comes a bold tartan pattern in purples, blues and greens, printed diagnolly and accented by a traditional Scandinavian appliqué of delicate birch leaves in felt and faux leather. by irma

Built over several centuries, Kenilworth Castle was founded in the 1120s by Geoffrey de Clinton, Lord Chamberlain to Henry I. The castle was significantly enlarged by King John at the beginning of the 13th century. John of Gaunt spent lavishly in the late 14th century, turning the medieval castle into a palace fortress. Ruined, only two of its buildings remain habitable today. by erika

Very Early Viking Burial. The carefully stacked remains of 33 men were buried in the war boat that brought them from Scandinavia to an Estonian island more than a century before the Vikings are thought to have been able to sail across such distances. The archaeologists believe the men died in a battle some time between 700 and 750, perhaps almost as much as a century before the Viking Age officially began.
