Ce n'est pas ce que dit le wiki US, une serie utile mais avec des erreurs
Critics have pointed out historical inaccuracies in the series' depiction of Viking society. These include a portrayal of Viking government (in the person of Earl Haraldson) as autocratic rather than essentially democratic, the Vikings' supposed ignorance of the existence of the British Isles, and the use of the death penalty instead of outlawry (skoggangr) as a punishment for heinous crimes.
Monty Dobson, a historian at Central Michigan University, criticised the show's depictions of Viking clothing, but went on to state that fictional shows like Vikings could still be a useful teaching tool. The Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten reported that the series incorrectly depicted the temple at Uppsala as a stave church in the mountains, whereas the historical temple was situated on flat land and stave churches were a hallmark of later Christian architecture in Norway.
Showrunner Michael Hirst said that historical accuracy is difficult to achieve because little is recorded from the period it depicts. Many records are secondhand accounts from Christians, which are biased because of their persistent conflict with the Vikings.
