Yes, yes, they also had socks, fire jewelry, amazing artwork and a surprisingly deep culture. Spare me the wtfacts shit, I'm familiar with what vikings were really like. Learning about the misconceptions in history is a hobby of mine. And the dirty peasants weren't nearly as dirty as you make them out to be. While they did indeed bathe only a couple of times a year, in most regions it was common to wash your face, hands, feet and genitals at least once a day, after you come home after working the fields or in a workshop or whatever. Because, while they didn't have amazing hygienic standards, dirt and dust on your face feel uncomfortable, most people ate with their hands and you don't want to have shit and sawdust on them when you're doing that, you don't want to track dirt everywhere and, much like with faces, when your junk's dirty it just feels uncomfortable as fuck.

And vikings didn't bathe just because they liked not smelling like shit, they just realized something that it took the rest of humanity a couple of centuries to understand - ships are heaven for diseases. It's what made trans-atlantic journeys so hard in the renaissance - half the fucking crew would die of disease before they even make it. Starvation and storms were the least of their troubles. So, it's best to be as clean and healthy as possible when you set out on a long ship journey, otherwise you may end up killing the whole crew. Also, they may have noticed that dirt causes infections and that is one shitty way to die. Especially since it doesn't get you into Valhalla.
