Turns Out That Viking Warrior Thought To be Male Is Actually Female!

The skeleton was initially found in the mid-19th century and was posited to be female two years ago. After much debate and criticism, the research team is confident that the high-ranking warrior skeleton is indeed "unassailably female."

The warrior woman was buried in elaborate clothing and her grave contained a stunning array of weapons, including a sword, an ax, 25 armor-piercing arrows, a fighting knife, two lances and two spears. She was also buried with two horses, underlining her high status in Viking society.
