While Vikings are known (and shown in pop culture) for their brutish behavior, that wasn’t their original nature. Before that, they were farmers, traders, storytellers, artists, and explorers. They were also not tied to a single race. Vikings came from Denmark, Norway, and Sweden; but there were accounts of them being Finnish, Estonian, and Saami, as well.
Back then, they were collectively called ‘Dani’ (Danes) or ‘Northmen’, referring to the rural countryside where they made a living farming. Why they left their homeland in favor of riding narrow ships to pillage and plunder is still a mystery, even to scholars, today.
But what cemented their reputation as merciless warriors was the attack on the Lindisfarne monastery, in northeastern England. Victims claimed they ransacked even the library, taking treasures and making slaves of the monks. Since then, Viking raids would spread across Europe, concentrating on coastal targets but eventually taking the battle inland.
