That is a great image - a wonderful reminder to me of my love of history classes in elementary school! And you're so right; S is to see; all the wonderful photos posted to abc Wednesday. Thanks for having visited my sparrows.

The soldier, sword and shield are so stunning and "stylish".

Ann (MobayDP) said...

Superb! :)

Bibi said...

I would have loved to see your sword and shield in person. I know about Lindisfarne's being destroyed by the Norsemen, leading to England's viking kings, all because I'm very interested in William the Conqueror, a viking descendant himself.

Great post! Thanks for visiting mine, too.

reader Wil said...

It certainly is an impressive Viking, but then again it's not surprising! He's from Norway!! .
Wasn't Lindisfarne the first place to be attacked by the Vikings? Actually they never left Great Britain or France and they had a great influence on the English language. Thanks for your visit. Your blog is interesting!
