The Viking era started in AD 793, when the Vikings raided the English island of Lindisfarne. Swedish Vikings raided to the east, whilst the Danish and Norwegian Vikings traveled to the west. Every summer they would raid the monasteries and towns of Britain, Ireland and France. The adaptability that had made the originally fierce people so successful also caused them to become assimilated into the cultures that hey had conquered. The Viking age ended with the Norman invasion of Britain in 1066.
