The Byzantine Emperor Theophilos noticed their great skills in war, and invited them to serve as his personal bodyguard, known as the Varangian Guard.
The Arab traveller Ibn Fadlan described these Vikings as follows:. I have seen the Rus as they came on their merchant journeys and encamped by the Itil. I have never seen more perfect physical specimens, tall as date palms, blond and ruddy; they wear neither tunics nor caftans, but the men wear a garment which covers one side of the body and leaves a hand free.

Southern Sweden is predominantly agricultural, with increasing forest coverage northward. Most of Sweden has a temperate climatedespite its northern latitudewith largely four distinct seasons and mild temperatures throughout the year.
The winter in the far south is usually weak and is manifested only through some shorter periods with snow and sub-zero temperatures, autumn may well turn into spring there, without a distinct period of winter.
The country can be divided into three types of climate: However, Sweden is much warmer and drier than other places at a similar latitude, and even somewhat farther south, mainly because of the combination of the Gulf Stream   and the general west wind drift, caused by the direction of planet Earth's rotation.

In How is Sweeden white legal high made, however, the same high-pressure systems sometimes put the entire country far below freezing temperatures.
There is some maritime moderation from the Atlantic which renders the Swedish continental climate less severe than that of nearby Russia.
