questions for link two:…

  1. The article states that the idea of women Viking warriors was believed to be “mythological embellishments—a belief colored by modern expectations of gender roles.” What does this mean?
  2. Why do you think that the scholarly community did not believe Anna Kjellström’s conclusion that the skeleton was a woman?
  3. Why are the elements related to trade found in the grave as important as those related to war?
  4. Both the article on Amazons and the one on Vikings use discoveries in gravesites to connect myth to facts and develop a better understanding of women warriors. These discoveries threaten modern understandings of gender roles. Give examples from both texts that show how the gravesite discoveries tell a very different story from what society claims are the roles for men and women.
