Many of the newest discoveries will raise eyebrows. Who were the Vikings and what lured them to sail to the ends of the known world? The term Viking has its origins in the Old Norse word ‘Veeck’ meaning ‘Bay’. These seafarers first made their appearance along northern European trading routes in the seventh century AD. Originally the Viking homelands made up the Scandinavian countries known today as Norway, Denmark and Sweden, vast stretches of dense forest and high mountains broken only by broad inlets.
