Think of fearsome Viking warriors and the image of ferocious, bearded men comes to mind.

But, according to Ella Al-Shamahi, women were not only part of the great Vikings hordes, they may even have led them.

The broadcaster says the graves of elite female warriors have often been historically misidentified as men. And some of these fearsome female fighters could be buried across Scotland.

In her documentary, Viking Warrior Women, she comes face-to-face with a 1,000-year-old female Viking whose face has been reconstructed by Scots scientists from a skull found in Norway.

The skeleton was buried in a prominent Viking burial site in Solør in the east of the country, surrounded by a huge cache of weapons. Yet archaeologists had refused to believe she was a warrior because of her gender.

The 42 DD size breast plates and the helmets with Rabbit dildos instead of horns were a bit of a giveaway, I suspect......
