The Vikings, mostly known for their seafarers and accomplishments as pirates, were one of the most dominant culture during its times from around 800 C.E. to the 1,100 C.E. They were a group of Scandinavians who left their homelands to seek fortune elsewhere. These seafaring-warriors, collectively called as Norsemen (“Northmen”), began to raid coastal sites and monasteries in the British Isles. For the next three centuries, they would prove themselves not only as pirates and raiders, but also as traders and settlers on much of the European continent, including parts of Britain, modern-day Russia, Iceland, and Greenland.
