I am a museum educator and storyteller specializing in the viking age and today is the international viking day! Ask me anything!
My name is Thomas A. Olsen and I work as a museum educator and storyteller specializing in the viking age.
My home base is Fotevikens Museum in Sweden but I also travel all over Europe to tell stories.
These days I'm pretty much stuck to trying to tell my stories on YouTube so I thought I would do an AMA for you guys.
Ask me absolutely anything you want. As a storyteller I will warn you that everything I tell you is the truth and some of it has also happened.
My channel for those that are interested: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_2_a-p42Fmf7hal2jp9CJg
Here is my latest video in honor of the day. It's about Olav Haraldsson, arguably the most famous viking in Norway. He eventually became a Saint and the perpetual king of Norway. https://youtu.be/3eqHqLXAFbg

Edit 2: I'm back and awake, so if you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask.
