Oh dear! Your score shows us that you're not as knowledgeable about the world of Vikings as Thor and Odin would have liked. As punishment, the Norse gods have sentenced you to an hour of Viking study a week, so that you'll have a better chance of gaining their favor next time you take this quiz. You never know, with a bit of effort you might just find yourself feeling compelled to purchase a greatsword and a longship, and setting out on a grand adventure soon enough!

Pretty good! While your results aren't entirely flawless, they show that you've got quite a decent understanding of the way the world of the Vikings worked. In fact, it's highly unlikely that anyone's going to catch you out on your knowledge of the Norse gods, Viking ships or heroes any time soon. Be careful though, if you spend much more time studying these powerful men's ancient ways, you might start unwittingly adopting one or two of their habits, which may not be entirely pleasant for your friends and family members.

God of the Vikings
Outstanding! Your incredible score shows that there's very little that you don't know about the world of the Vikings. Thor, Odin and Loki are extremely proud of your accomplishments and have cordially invited you to join them in the halls of Valhalla, when you feel that you're ready. Whether you choose to get there by flying with Valkyries or by hitching a ride with Odin's eight-legged steed, we're sure that you'll fit right in, as you'll certainly have plenty of topics to talk about!
