Viking Fact Twelve

The Vikings had a very balanced diet. Their meat came from their domesticated livestock such as cattle, pigs and sheep and from the animals they hunted like boar, deer and moose. Fish were plentiful as they had cod, haddock and herring. They grew their own vegetables including onions, peas and cabbage and foraged for hazelnuts, raspberries and strawberries. They ate mainly barley bread. When they weren't drinking wine and mead their drinking horns flowed with milk and buttermilk.
