Homeworkfilter: Help me figure out some clever viking themed titles and advertisements.

For a project in my history class, we were assigned to do a magazine article in the same vein as TIMEs person of the year. We pick someone from a certain time frame and then pick a year in their life. I'm doing Erik the Red, and his settling of Greenland.
Part of the project is the actual magazine effect: journalistic voice, cover, layout, advertisements, etc. I'm looking for a clever title for the magazine itself. The class itself isn't focused on vikings at all, so it might be better if the title isn't too specific.
I'm also looking for time appropriate advertisement ideas. I've been trying to think of things that we use today that might have a more primitive ancestor in 1000 AD Scandanavia. Are there any tools or such that have been found in Greenland or Scandanavia but not anywhere else?
Funny is always good. Thanks for your help!
