Viking Today is a
magazine about Viking culture and Viking life - also today. We mix
past and present and try to draw lines in history from prehistoric
time until today.
The goal of the
magazine is to bring more understanding for the relation between
history and our culture and daily life today.
It is our belief
that more understanding of our cultural background will make it easier
to understand that other people also have a cultural background and
that it is as important for them as it is for one self.
So even though the
subject is "Vikings" it is as well culture in general. The
history of a people is important - but not more important than the
history and culture of other people in the world.
So publishing this
magazine is a hope for a more peaceful dialog between people. Maybe
this hope is naive, but it is still important to work for it.
The first edition
of the magazine came on print in 2004. After being sold on Museums and
Viking events - in Denmark and on few places in Sweden and Germany. In
2006 it was decided only to publish it on the internet in the future.
Because of limited economic resources It will take some time to
develop it. We hope for your understanding and patience. Ideas,
information and comments are welcome.
Since the magazine
is produced in Denmark, there is still most information about Denmark,
but the reason is only because of limited resources. The goal is to
reach anybody who shares our interest on these subjects.
