Leif Ericson, a famous Viking
  1. A Viking was a person from Scandinavia from 793 AD-1066 AD. They were famous as warriors, pirates, explorers and traders.
    The Vikings sailed in ships called longboats.
    The Vikings raided many monasteries throughout Northumberland as they saw monks as easy prey.
    Monks believed in peace, so they would not fight back. The monasteries were filled with valuables and riches, so it was an ideal building to attack.
    The word Viking literally translates to "Pirate."
