    So no outside powers traded for African slaves prior to the rise of Islam? You sure you want to go with that? I suspect the rest of your post is on shaky ground too, but that assertion is pure invention.

    Vikings on History channel is doing a fair interpretation.
    Not historically accurate but fair.

    Look up Lagatha. She existed as did Ivar, etc. But, their events recorded in "the sagas" and History Channel's presentation do miss some issues. Likewise Rollo and founding the Normans. Timing wrong.
    Bjorn is speaking "Viking" with Muslims who claimed they learned it from the Kiev Rus Norse.
    Bjorn came into the Mediterranean from the west.

    :omfg: Floki is sounding like a Marxist now. :lol:
    Or maybe a Mormon or first Christian circa 40 AD.​




    And Iceland seemingly has no trees.
    What's a carpenter to do?

    I just looked it up. There were forests that were even slash & burn to create fields.
    Early Vikings had lumber in Iceland.
