It’s kind of amusing how we believe that we are the center of our own universe and that the contemporary age is the most significant period in history. Sure, it’s undoubtedly a fantastic time in history when compared to previous eras, but there are many other eras throughout history that we aren’t even aware of.
We can also tell you that the Vikings undoubtedly believed they were the most important people in history, and what do you know? They are no longer here. But someone still cares about their heritage enough to carve a Viking face into a pumpkin.
