For instance, they wore mail armor to help stop swords from hurting the chest area. Helmets and shields were used to protect themselves too. Some of the weapons the vikings used were axes, two-handed axes, spears, swords and double edged swords. The vikings favored their swords more than any other weapon because they are light and do more damage. But really the Vikings built a lot of fascinating things. Like there churches had great engraving and good structure. But really there houses had a great frame and structure that kept rain away or snow.
