Viking fight choreographers Kelle and Gernot Longbow reenact viking warfare in an authentic way. In this video they show you how. The Vikings claimed that their swords were indestructible. That's probably a bit of a stretch. But they must have been nearly indestructible to allow the Vikings to wreak so much havoc and destruction.
This webisode is connected to our full episode Inside the Berlin Island Museums (Pergamon and Neues) where there is a longer segment on viking swords.
