Hippos & Vikings

Recently was viewing a couple of photos on National Geographic Website. this photo was taken in 1999 Iceland by NG Photographer Sisse Brimberg. This particular photo came along with these comments which looked intresting.

"True wisdom, said a Viking poet, comes to one who 'has traveled far and knows the ways of the world.' The rich took horses on voyages, even into the afterlife: Horses were often buried with their owners."
From "In Search of Vikings," May 2000, National Geographic magazine
