    The Horse that the viking age used were very small, they are still around in Iceland today. It would not be too difficult, to not be able to ride such a horse if a person was tall, In Iceland even today riding those type horses, shows that many men have to lean backwards to have there feet clear.
    Rollo,s nickname makes common sense, as he was believed to be tall. It was possibly the same sized Horse also used in Anglo Saxon England. The Normans no doubt began to use larger Arabian type horses, acquired through there experience's on their travels, and adapted their fighting skills accordingly. It, was possibly this 'difference' that resulted in the Norman victory at Hastings, by his descendant William.

    Regarding the Update, Dna etc bones. I recall they had some problems, and were unable to prove a connection to Rollo.

    I'm curious too. It'd be nice to have some aDNA from Normandy, and more specifically from some of Scandinavian descended population too.

    Shocking Discovery – The Skeletons Are Much Older

    Forensic experts from Centre for GeoGenetics in Copenhagen, Denmark and University of Oslo, Norway have now examined the two corpses in the burial and released the results.
    The results are disappointing, not only for the Danes, but also for the Norwegians. The two skeletons in the sarcophagus are in no way related to Viking Rollo. They are much older!
    “These skeletons have nothing to do with Rollo. The skeletons in the sarcophagus are in fact much older, one from 250-300 years before our era and the other from around the year 700, that is, before the Viking era, “ says historian and project initiator Sturla Ellingvåg from Foundation explico.
    The condition of the skeletons were unfortunately very poor, and researchers were unable to obtain DNA.
    What is really interesting is that the elder skeleton is actually from 3rd Century BC!
    “This has caused quite a stir, and since the elder is from 1-2 centuries before the Roman conquest of the area, we are speculating if this could be the relic of a early Celtic chieftain. At the moment, we have sent in a tooth for Strontium Isotop analysis, and we expect to know more about this issue soon,” Ellingvåg says.
