Historical manga Vinland Saga combines the fictional story of the explorer Thorfinn with actual events from the times of Vikings. But one fan on Twitter had a few notes on a recent panel — and the manga's creator had a response.
Twitter user @MyoyoShinnyo pointed out that the manga's recent depiction of Denmark is significantly more mountainous than the real place. Here's the manga's depiction of Jutland:

Manga creator Makoto Yukimura weighed in on his own Twitter, acknowledging his mistake and apologizing for the inaccuracy. He admits he was actually envisioning the Viking stronghold of Jomsborg (Pomerania, a coastal region to the north of Germany and Poland) when he drew the scene:

The Vinland Saga anime is due to premiere sometime this year.
