    Viking trader
Description:
For 300 years, from the 8th to 11th centuries, the Vikings took the world by storm in search of land, slaves, gold and silver. These brave warriors and explorers set sail from the countries now known as Denmark, Norway and Sweden and raided across Europe to as far as modern Iraq and even North America. They were shrewd traders, excellent navigators and superb craftsmen and shipbuilders. They gradually began to settle in the lands they raided and built fortresses, but many continued as great sea traders, travelling far to buy and sell goods.
