Lost and Found will be a reserved safe space for this exploration and for people of color to be vulnerable and receive support. Lost and Found invites you to share your story, using theatre and performing arts as an outlet.

Book Talk: "Men of Terror - A Comprehensive Analysis of Viking Combat"
Hosted by Scandinavian Cultural Center

Viking society revolved around violence, as seen in their myths, poetry, law codes, pictures, and even in their house architecture. One Viking, a man named Fraði, was memorialized on a runestone raised 1000 years ago and praised for being a “man of terror”. Who were these people who praised this violence, and what made violence such an integral part of their society?

Join author Dr. William R. Short for an afternoon of surprising research results and fascinating insights into the lives and society of these people we call Vikings: these men of terror. This material, based on a 20+ year-long scientific study of the combative methods of the Vikings, is taken from the book, Men of Terror: A Comprehensive Analysis of Viking Combat, co-authored with Reynir A. Óskarson. The book presents, for the first time, a holistic picture of Viking combat, created by combining and overlaying many different sources.
