FINDING VIKINGS IN BRITAIN 1 LINDISFARNE
The first raid on ‘Holy Island’ in 793 AD is seen as the start of the Viking Age. Visit the museum and see the ‘raider stone’, a 9th-century grave-marker linked to the attacks. On one side are carved seven men with weapons raised. On the other side, little figures kneel before a cross as the sun and moon hang in the sky, and two arms encircle the world. Judgement Day has arrived.
