Daily Histoire

Daily facts, recipes, mythology and history.

IMAGES: With so many social media outlets, many times I cannot find the original photographer's feed or site (or it's been reposted/altered by someone claiming it as their own).
Would love to credit your image - email info@rocklove.com.

SOURCES: Many of the facts are compiled from multiple sources - dissertations & publications quoting the same research. Happy to provide a bibliography, I just don't include it per post to avoid overwhelming text.

RECIPES: Some are adapted for the modern day kitchen; many include sources and historical notes identifying more authentic ingredients. The goal is to learn something fun and traditional that you can cook for yourself... rather than list unattainable ingredients with instructions for over a fire pit ;)

The average height of men in the Viking era, based on skeletal measurements, ranged from 170-181cm (5ft 7in to 5ft 11in).
Still taller than other Europeans at the time… but not the towering six and a half feet we tend to imagine.
