Ancient Viking warrior considered a paragon of Norse masculinity by historians, turns out to have female genes

@erosdiscordia @DialMforMara this is not the first such reveal, there is at least one female body buried with weaponry (and therefore presumed to be male) in England as well.

@erosdiscordia @DialMforMara what I am curious about is if there are graves presumed to be female (because of grave content) that are male, but I have yet to hear tell of that


@Awizadofearthsea @erosdiscordia I would love to hear about that. I can only assume it would get an even funnier reaction out of the neckbeards.
