Transcript of Viking Art and Traditions

Writing was a certain skill use to communicate to others. It was used to keep records and other things in order. However, the Vikings did not have paper or parchment like material. Their history and culture was passed down orally through stories and poems. Instead, Viking runes were carved with a knife or chisel into stone and wood. The way of writing was amazing back then, what happened.
The ancient vikings celebrated a lot of festivals that involved their Norse Gods. One of their festivals is at the end of January on every Tuesday that they celebrate their viking past. They tell stories about what had happened back in the ancient times. Each day of a week is named after a god. For example Thursday is Thor's day.
