Norman and Anglo-Saxon Sites

Attackers never lose, Defenders never win...


There were "Swedish" and "Danish/Norwegian" Vikings. The Danish and Norwegian mostly sailed westwards, to Western Europe and England and Ireland and the associated islands. The Swedish mostly went eastwards, often dragging the boat overland, into modern-day Russia and further on to Byzantium and the Caliphate. The Normans are perhaps the best known descendents of the Vikings, and their descendents conquered England in 1066. There are strong links to the Irish and the Anglo-Saxons as well as other areas such as Iceland and Greenland. There is strong evidence that the Vikings reached the shores of the USA.


Norman and Anglo-Saxon Sites

Mostly these are only the sites (that I personally thought worthwhile) in English. There are many others: check the links from some of the referenced pages. There are just too many sites to list them all - this is only a hobby for me. I will look at other sites with original content not listed here, if I am advised.

The Normans were descendants of the Vikings.

 
Who were the Normans?
Attackers never lose, Defenders never win... Information on - William I the Conqueror - King of England
Attackers never lose, Defenders never win... Secrets of the Norman Invasion of England
Attackers never lose, Defenders never win... To find out about everyday life in the period visit the fictional Regia Anglorum pre-Conquest estate of Wichamstow which is an interesting and ever growing resource for anybody with an interest in Early Medieval Europe in general and Anglo-Saxon and Viking Britain in particular. Virtual Recreations of places and people in a village, stories as well as info about the weapons and warfare of the period. Many Articles on understanding and making items. Also many external links.
