The article you're using was wrote and updated in 2011.
The article the OP, ATODASO is using was, is another update in 2014.
Here is the Link.
By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.

It is believed the first people to bare the Title Viking came from a small inlet on a Fjord in Norway, that Village and bay like Inlet are called Vikin (A name which may predate the Viking's), Now in old norse the Word Vik meant man as well so there is some dispute about the real meaning of viking with related norse word's such as Vikingr and Viking actually having two meaning's to do with adventure and travel.
The Norse people' are actually a more mixed bunch than you would think, though the scandinavian's through harsh terrain and weather are less mixed there origin's can probably be traced back to western russia and eurasia before there ancestors were displaced through tribal migration's of the Slavic Tribe's (the truth is they probably mixed and there was no definite displacement so they may simple be a vestige of the pre mixed racial grouping).
and a stiff wind to fill there Goat Hair Sail's, Viking ship's used Goat Hair from a breed of Goat that is found today only in scandinavia in norway, it's hair does not retain water and is also great for making warm clothing that allows your body to breath and even when wet keeps the warmth in.
I could go on but where the hell do you get your opinion's from.
