      A thrilling story of courage and determination in the face of adversity, of despair and joy, and of loyalty and love. In the West things were stranger still because after repeated Viking attacks on the Frankish settlement of Paris, a peace agreement was reached by which the Vikings were conceded territory north of Paris which over time became Normandy and the Vikings became Normans. I think I have made a good effort looking for it in the on-line materials relating to raids, warfare, etc. In the late 12th century, a remarkable historian called Snorri Sturluson wrote down many of these legends in the Prose Edda.

      The blood of the Vikings runs in millions of veins in Europe and the Americas and the tale of their conquests, explorations and achievements continues to inspire people around the world. The organizational genius of the Normans manifested by William the Conqueror was wielded by one Roger Guiscard pictured here in his battle in in Sicily. The southernmost living Vikings lived no further north than Newcastle upon Tyneand travelled to Britain more from the east than from the north. He starts with the Viking incursions on the coasts of England, from the ninth to 11th centuries. The ruins of the late medieval church at Lindisfarne The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle for the year records: "In this year terrible portents appeared over Northumbria and sadly affrightened the inhabitants: there were exceptional flashes of lightning, and firey dragons were seen flying in the air.

      The raiders who sacked the island monastery of Lindisfarne were the first Vikings, sea-borne attackers who brought two centuries of terror to northern Europe. A thrilling story of courage and determination in the face of adversity, of despair and joy, and of loyalty and love. He starts with the Viking incursions on the coasts of England, from the ninth to 11th centuries. It was the Vikings who first built up Kiev from a pissant village into a major settlement. It relates the astonishing achievement of the Vikings in forging far-flung empires whose sinews were the sea and whose arteries were not roads but maritime trading routes. Norn, as they called the Norse-based language spoken in our archipelago, survived in the Isle of Man untiland they were still speaking it in Orkney as late as the 19th century.

I resisted that call but did get my fair share of Viking type behaviour from Skyrim and then later in the Skellige islands in The Witcher 3.
