The Viking raids began around 793. First, the Vikings make a boat called a long boat. Once the longboat is made, they put supplies on their boat. Supplies like animals, weapons, food, and fresh water. The vikings set sail and look for land to raid. When they find a place to raid they take jewels and bring slaves back to their home to sell. They also kill people. When the Vikings get home they have a feast to celebrate their return and their success. Christian missionaries told the vikings about Jesus. The Vikings stopped being so fierce and stopped raiding by 1066.
