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. Using the latest archaeological evidence, the author reassesses the Viking contribution to Late Anglo-Saxon England and examines the creation of the new mixed Anglo-Scandinavian identity.
