The Black Vikings of Nordic Europe

Viking activities at times also extended into Africa. The black blood type is common even in Nordic Europe. The Vikings were known as Ascomanni "ashmen" because of the color of there skin. A prominent black Viking of the eleventh century was Thorhall, who was aboard the ship that carried the early Vikings to the shores of North America. Another black Viking, more notable than Thorhall, was Earl Thorfinn, "the most distinguished of all the earls in the Islands."  Thorfinn ruled over nine earldoms in Scotland and Ireland, and died at the age of seventy-five. When the British Isles were invaded by the Vikings some of these Norse raiders were Africoid.  In fact, different varieties of ‘Viking’ Africans lived in Scandinavia during the middle ages and are frequently mentioned in Viking sagas.
