In the year AD 789, three strange ships arrived at Portland on the southern coast of England and Beaduheard, the reeve of the King of Wessex, rode out to meet them. He took with him only a small band of men under the mistaken impression that the strangers were traders: ”and they slew him...” records the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle tersely. It adds, with over a century of grim hindsight, ”those were the first ships [of Northmen] which came to the land of the English”.

This was the beginning of a period of history known to us as the Viking Age, normally dated to around AD 800 - 1050, when Scandinavian peoples from the modern countries of Denmark, Norway and Sweden influenced much of northern Europe and beyond.


This web page is devoted to Viking history, and particularly to the Viking Island Gotland.
