Information: The Vikings (from Old Norse vikingr) were seafaring people fron Denmark, Norway and Sweden. In texts such as Icelandic sagas, the phase "to go on a viking" implies participation in a raiding activity or piracy.

The Viking Age in European history was from the late 8th to the mid-11th centuries. During this period the Vikings left Scandinavia and raided, traded, explored, and settled in wide areas of Europe including Britain and Ireland.

The key success of the Vikings was down to their extraordinary shipbuilding skills. Their wooden ‘longships’, could navigate rough seas or shallow rivers and could be landed on beaches.
