Because they were more advanced in metal work than any other culture like the monks. Yes they were raiders and they did kill a lot of people but in there beliefs if you died in battle you got to go to Valhalla and begging for your life made you pathetic and the monks and many other cultures were different from the vikings but vikings had advanced technology such as metal work there boats and much more.
The Vikings possessed technology that few of their time possessed. Their ability to sail the oceans using sun stones and by using the patterns of the stars gave them the ability to travel across the globe, reaching areas such as North America, the British Isles and even into Asia. At home, their farming techniques helped produce abundant crops. As a society, they also recognized and understood the importance of cleanliness and the effects it had on ones health. They were rich storytellers that used their stories as moralities tales and often incorporated those stories into the workings of their every day lives. Their fearlessness on the battle fields, using wooden shields that were reinforced with metal, the craftsmanship of their swords, knives, battle axes and other implements of war helped them leave a legacy that is still greatly remembered today.
When one thinks of the Vikings, one thinks of a piratical culture wearing helmets with horns. However, there's more to them than those stereotypes: they were an advanced culture that prided themselves in their navigation abilities and their interest in discovering new lands. Let's have stereotypes about the past remain in the past, and appreciate the Vikings for what they were.
The Vikings were an advanced culture in many ways. They mastered ship building and ruled much of the ocean for several centuries before the great Empires like Spain, Portugal and England ruled the seas. The Vikings even colonized parts of North America about 500 years before European exploration reached the Americas. In short, yes, the Vikings could have been considered an advanced culture.
They were not an advanced culture because once the vikings started to take over islands and parts of another culture , if a viking wanted to marry someone from that culture they could,but they would have to adapt to that culture ,.So this means the viking culture will be forgotten a bit and after time upon now the viking culture has been erase and nobody knows the exact language they speak.So the idea that vikings could marry another culture shouldnt have happend so now no vikings have truely existed
No, the Vikings were not an advanced culture. It is generally accepted that the Vikings were not an advanced culture. Most people agree that the Vikings were a culture that was before modern society and their ways were not advanced. The Vikings were a pre-modern culture that was relegated to history.
