vikings wearing horned helemts is also a noble myth
European Bronze Age and Iron Age horned helmets are known from a number of depictions, but few actual finds. Headpieces mounted with animal horns or replicas of them also occur, as in the Mesolithic "frontlets" from Starr Carr. These were probably used for religious ceremonial or ritual purposes.
[b]there is no evidence that horned helmets were ever worn in battle at any point during the Viking Age[/b]
It wasn't until the end of the 19th century that people started drawing Vikings wearing horned helmets because the villains in a popular Wagner opera wore such helmets.

lets not forget aout the myth of vikings being 6'5 monster hulks
Archaeological finds show that Viking men stood about 5’7” (170cm) tall . They also had such feminine skulls - and female Viking skulls have such masculine features - that even now it can be difficult to tell the gender of a Viking skeleton.
