793... The peaceful monastery at Lindisfarne is attacked and pillaged by men who rise out of the mists, cleaving the waves in powerful ships.
This attack marks the beginning of the story of the Vikings, also known as the Northmen, Sea Wolves and the Scourge of the Faithful. For the next three centuries, every coast and every city will live in fear of these warriors and their unequalled savagery.
Soon, the Norsemen will no longer be satisfied with looting, theft and pillaging. The armies of the powerful Scandinavian kingdoms will come together in fleets to descend upon Europe, conquering countries, ransoming kings and emperors, and founding colonies.
