Vikings

The End of the Viking Era

Vikings were very adaptive.   They learned to take advantage of whatever situation they found themselves in.   When they settled in Europe, they took farmlands and took slaves, but the slaves became part of their families.

Their languages were all Germanic-based.   They could understand the Saxons and Germans.   The Vikings were not on a special crusade; they were not trying to bring paganism to Europe.   Quite the opposite...   In fact, they were receiving influences from a Europe that they saw as somehow superior to their own ways.

They were not out to kill everyone in the countryside but rather to find a way to live, to set up shop.   In the end, they just readily mixed in.
