The Vikings in Western Europe

Talks - History

Event Description

The growing political instability in Frankia from the 830's allowed the Vikings to move from being nuisances to establishing themselves. This is the story of attacks on Noirmoutier, Rouen, and even Paris; of Vikings attacking and occupying Normandy; sailing to Spain, Portugal, and Italy, and even as far as North Africa. It's an exciting story about Ragnor Lodbok's sons and Rollo the Walker.

Meet The Speaker, Sandy

Sandy Leong is an historian, passionate about bringing history to life and is a lively and entertaining speaker. She has a popular series of entertaining, light hearted talks on general historical subjects. However she specialises in the Tudors, an exciting time in the country as it was changing fast; and in the Viking period, who are much more than the stereotype of raiders in horned helmets. She is an international, professional speaker, and published author.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
