@Pumanul What's important when you look into the past is to see all sides. It's so easy to become judgemental when we're sitting in the 21 century and look back at our past ancestors and think what monsters or saints they were, instead of having a nuanced picture of things.

I know historie for example is a magazine in Scandinavia which is particularly left-wing in it's presentation of history. It's even told several things that are actually not true but present it mainly because it fits their own biases. Not all Christian rulers and leaders were bloodthirsty warmongereres and the Viking pagans weren't the nice flower jumping, pacifist hippie people we see today in Scandinavia either.
