SAGOLIKA SISSIES & MACHO VIKINGS

THE VIKING MUSEUM IS JOINED BY ALEXANDER VOLK FROM FLAMING VIKING TOURS DURING PRIDE
Join us for an exciting, enlightening and funny tour through the Vikings attitude towards homosexuality and masculinity.
In the first part, Macho Vikings: Fear of the Butt we take examples from the language, laws and culture to take a look at masculinity and femininity, bottomshaming and gay panic. We cover some of the basics of Viking culture and compare with other cultures and periods in Swedish history.
In the second part Sagolika Sissies: Sejd, Myth and Gender, it’s Norse mythology with Loke genderbending, Asgårds alpha male, Oden, who is not as straight as thought and the time Tor did a dragshow for the giant Tyrm.
We will learn about sejd--the magic warlocks and witches practiced and its connection to weaving, goddesses and womanhood. The Shield Maidens really existed, and, it is still a controversy today as well as the beginning of a long tradition of women who lived as soldiers.
Tour in Swedish or English depending on group. One hour.
