    The Vikings came from Scandinavia which included, Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
    The name ‘Viking’ comes from a language called ‘Old Norse@and means a pirate raid.

    The Viking age in Eurpoe history was about AD 700 to AD 1100.
    During this period many Vikings left Scandinavia and travelled to other countries, such as Britain and Irelan, some Vikings went to fight and steal treasure.

    In Ad 787 three Viking Longships landed in southern England. The Vikings fought the local people, then sailed away, this is recorded inthe Anglo Saxon Chronicle, it was the firststruggle betwenn the Engish and the Vikings.
    The English call the Vikings invaders ‘Danes’, but they came from norway aswell aswell as Denmark.
