Watching it now. Thanks for posting this. I've seen pics of these chess pieces before, but I didn't realize the importance of them.
It seems like every couple of months recently I read about somebody else who stumbles on a viking ax or sword or something similar. Between the physical discoveries, and the two series (Vikings and The Lost Kingdom) that world is coming alive for me.
And, of course, it's very much part of our heritage too, even though we tend to forget about it, because each week we celebrate Thor's day, Oden's day, Tiw's day (the Norse god of war) and Frigga's day (Oden' wife).
