Overview

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.
