The vikings were very fearsome and easily angered attackers, who were only called this name in battle.
Why did the Vikings invade britain? Vikings invaded Britain because they knew that this was where all the riches and gold were. They also attacked Britain to use the remaining citizens as slaves, but some of them were sadly abandoned offshore. Another reason is that their crops were sandy, rock and too dry. It was had very monumental mountains and and was given a very cold weather.
What did the Vikings make their armour from? The Vikings used heavy armour (metal from Britain) to give themselves an advantage to win in the very vigorous battles, which had taken places with many countries. During normal times of the day they didn’t need to have the armour on because it was very unlikely they would be attacked.
Did you know? Only some children vikings got taught and even if they did get taught it would be privately!
