How Far Did the Vikings Get in Their Time?

We know that the Vikings have made their names for centuries. Not only were these men famous in their time but also in modern times. One of the reasons for this fame is their wild spirit and great brotherhood. But the focus here now is how far the Vikings actually get in their times. 

The fairest answer to this should be that we are yet to know exactly the number. But we know parts of the secrets.

The Vikings raided and traveled. They even had relationships with other religions. Because in the Vikings belief, they worshipped many gods. This made them easily accept other religions. We are yet to know how many religions actually got in touch with the Vikings.

By far, the scholars have been concerning about the major reason for Viking expansions. Originally, they started their voyages and carried out hit-and-run attacks. Later, it became territorial expansions which allowed them to settle in the new land, learning new things from the locals, and influencing the locals there as well.

During their settlement on new land, they learnt new knowledge and even got exposed to new religions. This was easy to understand because the Vikings worshipped Odin the Allfather who had a burning desire for knowledge and wisdom. For the Vikings, knowledge was always welcome no matter what form it might take. The Vikings once learnt fort-building techniques and applied it and built the Viking trelleborg. The archaeologists concluded that the Viking ring-shaped forts nearly reached geometrical perfection.
