Abstract

A wide variety of approaches based on historical, archaeological, place-name, linguistic, physical, and genetic tools can collectively provide a detailed understanding of the Vikings in peace and in war. This chapter and the rest of the book that follows focuses on one particularly exciting area of the Viking world, namely the north-west of England, an area where we now know them to have settled in large numbers. We take an overview of the technologies and approaches available and describe how new technologies are helping us to better understand what the Vikings left behind in terms of language, culture, archaeology, place-names, and genetic profiles of the people living there today.
