Viking Conquests & Voyages

Fierce fighters and expert navigators, the Vikings - aka 'Norsemen' - left their Scandinavian homelands from the late 8th cent. CE in search of riches, be it from pirating, pillaging or trade. Three centuries of journeys and raids took them all over Europe and as far as Arabia and Iran. They even reached North America - several centuries before Columbus attempted to find India across the Atlantic.
