Depends wholly on the perspective; in most of Europe the Viking Age is a part of the Middle Ages beginning at the fall of the Western Roman Empire (around 476) but in traditional Scandinavian historiology the Middle Ages is regarded as beginning around 1050 at the end of the Viking Age. Generally, Viking Age culture had little to do with what we traditionally connect with Medieval society, such as feudalism, the role of the Church, Catholicism and Islam, the Papacy and Monastic orders, the birth of the universities etc. so I intentionally refrained from posting Viking docs here but feel free to do whatever you wish :)

Examing the skeletons is what I would like to watch more, since Its the first time I ever seen anything like that. Great found, thank you for this.

I award you with my +.
+100% for being "racist retard". You rather be safe racist in your country, than dead French bundle of sticks under the truck wheels, blown to pieces by a bomb, or shot in your own country, by so called "refugees". Lewak logic. Youll all die, sooner or later :). Enemy of my enemy, is my friend. Muslims will deal with you, go use the power of crayons do defend yourself.

I'd really like to see more of those, myself. Speaks a lot for the weapons and the fashion of warfare seeing what injury types were inflicted.

A really excellent documentary I recently found about the Talhoffer manuscripts (some of our better sources to Medieval warfare). Don't mind the Danish texting, it's a UK program and the voice-over is in English (you may recognize the experimental archaeologist from 'The Weapons that Made Britain' series):

I liked watching these for his macabre fascination with the weapons.

Mike Loades is the guy who presents the Weapons that made Britain series, he is an awesome guy with a lot of knowledge, anything I have watched with him in it has been a good watch.
