I'll be the Viking
I'm frantically busy, so what am I doing, taking internet quizzes. (Only while eating breakfast, honest!)
So thanks to Scribbling Woman, I've found out via this quiz that my ideal historical job would be to be a Viking warrior. The other suggested alternatives included an "arming squire with its potential to become a knight", "topman" (sic), "powder monkey", "Riding officer", "Petardier's assistant" or "Guillemot-egg collector". But Viking sounded best.
