In history, Vikings were Norse explorers, warriors, merchants, and pirates who raided, traded, explored and settled in wide areas of Europe, Asia and the North Atlantic islands. Using their famed longships to travel , these Norsemen, reached as far east as Constantinople and the Volga River in Russia, and as far west as Iceland, Greenland, and Newfoundland, and as far south as Al-Andalus.This period of Viking expansion – known as the Viking Age – forms a major part of the medieval history of Scandinavia, Great Britain, Ireland and the rest of Europe. Vikings are often depicted as violent brutes or intrepid adventurers owing much to the modern Viking myth which had taken shape by the early 20th century.
