Wikipedia:WikiProject Norse history and culture

Olav Tryggvason kåres til Norges konge (1860) by Peter Nicolai Arbo.

The Norse history and culture WikiProject is a collaboration area and group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of the history, culture, language, and religion of the Norse people, both at home in Scandinavia and in their many overseas colonies through the ages, up to the time of the Kalmar Union in 1397. The best-known time period covered by this project is the Viking Age, but the focus will also be on the less-well known Nordic Bronze Age, Pre-Roman Iron Age, and the Norsemen during the High Middle Ages (c. 1000-1300).
