first invasions on Baltic Sea shores
n 793, a Viking raid on Lind­is­farne caused much con­ster­na­tion through­out the Chris­tian west. The amaze­ment of the English at the raids from the sea must have been matched by the amaze­ment of the raiders at such (to them) vul­ner­a­ble, wealthy and unarmed set­tle­ments.
