In modern times Vikings have captured the popular imagination, but what made someone a ‘viking’ in the early medieval period? Were all Scandinavians vikings and were all vikings Scandinavians? My PhD research focuses on two Scandinavian settlements in Britain and Ireland—the earldom of Orkney and the town of Dublin—both established quite early in the period of Viking activity in the region. I am seeking to establish how ‘Scandinavian’ these settlements remained after centuries of intermarriage, trade and alliances with the local surrounding population.
