Lessons from the Viking Lifestyle

Lessons from the Viking Lifestyle

Talk by Ingrid Galadriel Aune Nilsen

Given at TEDxTrondheim on September 28, 2013

“I am here to talk to you about my life as a Viking and how it has changed and shaped my personality and the way I view several aspects of today’s society, and how I started hunting for the authentic experience.”

Ingrid Galadriel Aune Nilsen is the founder and art director of Trondheim Vikinglag — an organization for people that are interested in history and handicrafts from the viking age. In the summer, Trondheim Vikinglag organizes the ‘Trondheim Viking Market’ where “vikings” from all over the world travel to Trondheim to sell their handicrafts, hold courses/lectures and to entertain. Outside of her viking life, Ingrid deals with marketing and media at the Sverresborg Trøndelag Folk Museum, where she uses her ‘practical-theoretical’ masters degree in historical reenactment as a basis for her work.
