But vikings where also farmers where men and women worked in symbioses,as well as fishermen exporting stockfish to southern Europe. Finally they were keen traders both trading with the indigenous people (the Sami people) as well as with all Europe reached by sailing on their longships.
The viking age is considered to have started with plundering of Lindisfarne (a monastery on the eastcoast of England) 793 and ending with christianity reaching Scandinavia in the middle of the 11th century.
Allthough a comparably short period of history,the narrative of the vikings have had quite an impact worldwide.
