In this episode we follow the Norse raiders who attacked much of Western Europe from about the ninth to the eleventh centuries. What made the such a threat and how did rulers of Europe respond to them.

We are joined by Danielle Turner, a historian who specializes in the Vikings and the author of the featured article in the latest issue of Medieval Warfare - 'The Viking Sieges of Paris: Brilliant Warfare or Pragmatic Decision?'
