Shieldmaiden in the Kitchen

Shieldmaiden in the Kitchen is a YouTube channel by Terri Barnes, a medievalist historian who focuses on the Viking Age. On the channel she combines and shares her love of history and cooking with how-to videos and recipes.

Many of the recipes are historic such as the Icelandic skyr or barley flatbread eaten by Vikings. Sometimes they are more modern, but there’s always a bit of history thrown in.


Terri loves to find and share history whenever and wherever she can, so subscribe and stay tuned as she brings you interesting interviews with other historians about food and the past, field trips to food spots that have a historical twist, and of course for more interesting recipes eaten by people through the ages.
