A lot has been written on Viking ships but not a lot on etiquette aboard. Whenever I think of captain-crew interaction my perception has been hopelessly tainted by Hornblower tales. So what was discipline like on a Viking ship? Say the ship is scheduled to set sail at a certain time and a seaman is late. Does he get punished? Flogged? Is there a Viking equivalent to "aye aye, captain"? I am interested in life aboard the ships - I have enough pics and schematics of Viking longboats, but very little info on the "human element". Thank you in advance.
