130 YearS LATER DNA ReVEALS THAT HIGH-RANKING VIKING WARRIOR WAs ACTUALLY A WOMAN For more than a century archaeologists had assumed the remains of a high-ranking Viking warrior discovered in Birka Sweden belonged to a man Now researchers have used DNA testing to confirm that the warrior who had been buried with military honors was actually a woman The study by a team at Stockholm University which was published on Friday in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology confirms that women held high roles in the Viking military and demonstrates the impact that sexist preconceptions can have in scientific research As the authors observe since the grave site was first excavated in the 1880s researchers never considered that the warrior might not be a man “This image of the male warrior in a patriarchal society was reinforced by research traditions and contemporary preconceptions Hence the biological sex of the individual was taken for granted” Charlotte Hedenstierna-Jonson an archaeologist at Uppsala University described the grave site which contained all of the trappings of a high-ranking Viking officer “Aside from the complete warrior equipment buried along with her – a sword an axe a spear armor-piercing arrows a battle knife shields and two horses – she had a board game in her lap or more of a war-planning game used to try out battle tactics and strategies which indicates she was a powerful military leader She’s most likely planned led and taken part in battles The researchers added that these new findings provide a new understanding of the Viking society the social constructions and also norms in the Viking Age The researchers also note that archaeologists and historians'’ attitudes towards the sex of the remains reveal a lot about our own culture “As long as the sex is male the weaponry in the grave not only belong to the interred but also reflects his status as warrior whereas a female sex has raised doubts” they write “This type of reasoning takes away the agency of the buried female The results call for caution against generalizations regarding social orders in past societies They further hope that the confirmation that there were high-ranking female warriors in Viking society will encourage more research using modern techniques aimed at creating a more accurate picture of historic cultures “This study shows how the combination of ancient genomics isotope analyses and archaeology can contribute to the rewriting of our understanding of social organization concerning gender mobility and occupation patterns in past societies” To read more about this new discovery in Smithsonian visit httpbitly2f0BHDB For books for children and teens about sword-wielding women check out our blog post 16 Books Starring Sword-Wielding Girls and Women at httpswwwamightygirlcomblog?p=9960 For a few of our favorite books about sword-loving Mighty Girls we recommend the picture book Brave Margaret An Irish Adventure for ages 5 to 9 httpswwwamightygirlcombrave-margaret the award-winning The Blue Sword for ages 9 and up httpswwwamightygirlcomthe-blue-sword the fantasy classic Alanna The First Adventure for ages 11 and up httpswwwamightygirlcomalanna-the-first-adventure and the graphic novel Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant for ages 13 and up httpswwwamightygirlcomdelilah-dirk And for books about women's diverse role in history from ancient times to the modern world visit our History & Biography section at httpswwwamightygirlcombookshistory-biography Meme
