Women were often trained in fighting in order to defend their home, if needed. While the evidence is small, there is evidence that suggests that there may have been women who fought alongside men in battle, away from the home. Women in Norse society also enjoyed basic rights such as inheriting property, filing for divorce and reclaiming their dowry in the event of a failed marriage.

While Norse society was dominated by men, women weren’t necessarily weak and subservient. I think it’s interesting to see the role of women in different societies, especially ancient societies, and see how far we’ve already progressed with Women’s Rights, even if we’re not to our ultimate goal yet.

“In the Byzantine Empire, as today, rings exchanged during the marriage rite witnessed a couple’s legitimate union. Three rings were associated with this rite of passage: one ring for engagement and two for marriage. The bezels were decorated with images and words of symbolic importance or inscribed with the names of the couple. In Greek Orthodox custom, following the Byzantine tradition, the ring is worn on the right, or “correct” hand, related to the acceptability of the marriage through an ancient rite of the clasping of the right hands.”
