    Hi mr Carr,
    Vikings were Norse seafarers,speaking the old Norse language,who raided and traded from there Scandinavian homelands across wide areas of northern and Central Europe,as well as European Russia ,during the late 8th to late 11th centuries .Viking warriors fought using long swords and axes .A good sword was handed down from father to son ,but Vikings also buried weapons with their owner when he died .The vikings were not all bloodthirsty raiders,so came to fight but others came to Britain to live peacefully. Thank you for these tasks, I had fun doing them .

    Hi Mr Carr

    The Viking age in European history for about AD700 to 1100. During this period many Vikings left there homelands in Scandinavia and travelled by longboat to other countries like Britain and Ireland

    Viking warriors fought using long swords and axes. A good sword was handed down from father to son but vikings also buried weapons with the owner when he died

    The Vikings were not all bloodthirsty raiders. Some came to fight but others came to Britain to live peacefully

    Thanks Mr Carr
