viking

“Viking is a term for [Norse] sea-roving raiders, who were fearles and fierce in battle.

The Viking age was launched when they raided the Lindisfarne monastery in England in 793.

Viking fleets roamed throughout Europe and the Mediterranean.

Their final episode was written when the last of them left Greenland in 1450.” p. 586
