In 800 CE, most humans in England were Vikings. The Vikings had plans to take over all of Europe. For years the Vikings would raid and kill anyone that stood in their way. The Vikings bowed to King Cnut, England’s first king. He made regular orders to raid European settlements and take valuables. At times, he tried to negotiate with the Europeans to give their valuables to the Vikings, but they always ended up having to kill Europeans and take the items by force. Most Vikings were peaceful farmers and had a wife. But the Viking raiders that went out on missions would have to deal with weather and disease while traveling. Vikings traveled all over the world. In fact, the Vikings discovered the U.S. continent about 500 years before Christopher Columbus did. The Vikings would often get dirty and rancid on their travels, but they actually liked to keep themselves clean. They would take a bath every week, which is a lot compared to knights during the Middle Ages, who would take a bath one or two times a year. Along with a few other inventions, the Vikings invented the comb we know and use today. The Vikings used the comb all the time, and because they shared combs, they would have lice all time. They bleached their hair to prevent head lice.
