Oakmont Sunday Symposium
The Vikings - A Place in History
In October, 2010, The Vikings of Bjornstad were invited to provide a seminar on the impact of the Vikings on the world today.  It was part of a series sponsored by the Oakmont Sunday Syposium that spans a wide range of philosophical, geographical and political topics.  Our seminar covered who the Vikings were, when they flourished, how they lived, and what influence they had on the world around them – and us. You can view the entire presentation (an hour and a half, including the Q & A) here: The Vikings - A Place in History.
