Viking Age England Paperback / softback
From shortly before AD 800 until the Norman Conquest, England was subject to raids from seafaring peoples from Scandinavia - the Vikings.
However, they were not only raiders but also traders and settlers.
During this period, the English state was unified under a single ruler for the first time and Anglo-Saxon society underwent great changes.
Using the latest archaeological evidence from places such as London, Lincoln and York, the author reassesses the Viking contribution to Late Anglo-Saxon England and examines the creation of a new Anglo-Scandinavian identity.
