When I watched an episode of "Vikings" recently, I understood a little of what they were saying. in some scenes, when the former priest translates, vikings and saxons (I think) speak ancient versions of their respective languages.

They speak (very bad) icelandic in the tv show; Icelandic being the closest to old norse, which would've been their language at the time period.

This is great :)

I was a little surprised, though, to find that pretty much all of the short Norwegian statements make sense in German (translated pretty literally) in the same situation as well. In fact, they are often used in exactly that sense in everyday colloquial German: Hä? | Ups/Oh... | Nein, echt? | (Und) Sonst? | Du?
