NUUK, Greenland -- While doing historical research in Greenland, archaeologist James Grande made an extraordinary find.
"I was excavating an old Viking settlement when I unearthed a well preserved edda," said Grande, "a collection of poems. Written around 1100 AD,
they speak of a Viking woman named Brunhilda Stewardde who was raised to godlike status for her sumptuous meals and visual flair."
Brunhilda Stewardde was responsible for inventing most of the look that defined the Vikings.
"The horned hats, the furs, the decor of the castle -- they were all Stewardde's ideas," said Grande. "According to the edda, she was just a
hardworking Viking housewife who hated the idea of wasting the pelts, antlers and teeth of animals after they had been stripped of meat."
