Random Topics - Vikings

A Viking is one of the Norse explorers, warriors, merchants, and pirates who raided and colonized wide areas of Europe from the late eighth to the early eleventh century. These Norsemen used their famed longships to travel as far east as Constantinople and the Volga River in Russia, and as far west as Iceland, Greenland, and Newfoundland. This period of Viking expansion is known as the Viking Age, and forms a major part of the medieval history of Scandinavia, Britain, Ireland and the rest of Europe in general.

1 Considering that the population of Norway in the early Middle Ages was no more than a few hundred thousand (and that of Denmark, including the south of what is now Sweden, was not much greater), it really is astonishing how influential these people became. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 18, 2011, 12:18 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

3 Someone has to say it, they weren't TOTAL thugs- as they actually mapped out extensive routes during their travels. Not only did they happen upon Iceland, Greenland and Vinland (Newfoundland) but they brought trade to many areas that had been overlooked for centuries during the Dark Ages. I went to the Jorvik Viking Center in York, England and saw a coin they'd found there minted in, of all places, Samarkand- what a story THAT coin could have told! Plus, they were the ones who built Dublin. Granted, they built Dublin so they could raid the interior Irish monasteries but they also wanted a good port for trading! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 11, 2009, 3:37 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
