Norse by Northwest - S01E05 - The Rus Vikings

The Rus Vikings - In this long episode I’ll give you the most detailed brief I can on the Rus Vikings – who they were, how they came to be and when they stopped being Vikings. As usual it will be a primer on the subject to try and explain about the Rus Vikings to people who may be beginners in this area of study. It'll be followed by an episode about The Varangian Guard and then The Vikings in Scotland.
