  • The Middle Ages are tough. Disease is rampant and the climate is poor. War is everywhere and strong government is a rarity.
  • But just when things couldn't get any worse...
  • The Vikings Attacked!
  • The attacked indiscriminately, at seemingly random places. 
  • They plundered everything and killed everyone. For weak kingdoms the Vikings spelled disaster. The terror continued on and on.
  • In 910, the first major defeat of a Viking army happened in The Battle of Tettenhall. The Viking Age would continue, but more victories for the Europeans were beginning to happen.
  • The Vikings, however, were beginning to turn Christian themselves. They began to adopt more European ideals and traditions. Soon the Age of the Vikings would come to a close.
  • By 1066, when William the Conqueror, a Kind over a Viking-founded colony, invades and becomes king of England, the Nordic countries were nearly as Christians as Europe was.
  • The Viking Age, was over. But the Middle Ages were not.
