4. Immediately thought of G.O.T's Brianna.

Most of us have always known that there were "warrior women", especially those of us of Scandinavian heritage. This, however, is quite amazing.

12. Really? Now, that's interesting. Gives me a different perspective of the Vikings.

I can imagine different scenarios as to why this was a female warrior, but what's important is that she was female. How unusual. Very interesting.

13. I wonder if the Osberg ship in Oslo is actually for a female Warrior not a Queen?

I got to visit that museum in 2000. It's amazing of the artifacts that were preserved.
