The Vikings came from Norway, Sweden and Denmark which are North of England. Their land was not fertile. It was rocky. They found it hard to grow crops. They found that England was rich with plentiful lands and treasures. The climate was much warmer than where they came from, they preferred it and wanted to settle here.

‘Men of war’ is how the Vikings are thought about and indeed they brought violence to England. Over 1200 years ago, sails were seen off the coast of Lindisfarne. The monks in the monastery watched as the longships came closer and landed. The warriors were fierce and frightening. The monks were skilled fighters but could not hold them back. The Viking raiders took gold from Lindisfarne back to Norway, Sweden and Denmark. These raids went on for many years as the Vikings stole from the monastery. The word ‘Viking’ means pirate, and these pirates were about to get even greedier…. ‘on 8 june 787 AD ravages of heathen men miserably destroyed God’s church on Lindisfarne with plunder and slaughter’ (Anglo Saxon Chronicle)

The Vikings used longships to raid and steal from other lands. The Longships were powered by sails or by rowing with oars.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
