A mass grave of 300 bodies uncovered in Derbyshire could be the burial site of the Viking Great Army's war dead, a new study has found. The mass grave was found in Repton in the 1980s and dating techniques at the time suggested it consisted of bones collected over several centuries.

Interesting.I had read once that there was evidence that the Vikings had made their way to Ireland so I guess it makes sense that they also made their way to Britain.

A few years ago when their was the overthrow and revolution in Ukraine I noticed the statue in Kiev. It sure looked like a bunch of Vikings.

Turns out it WAS a statue of Vikings - the founders of the city! In Ukraine! (Sailed down the river).

I didn’t realize they were ravaging England up to almost 900AD. Now their ancestors are being ravaged by pc indoctrination and most are feminist driven cucks.

They made their way to Sicily but now they can’t even make their way to Malmo with cars.

It’s the Rus - Viking tribe probably from Sweden.

Thanks for the ping.

The article totally confuses me.

“But confusingly, initial radiocarbon dates suggested it seemed to contain a mix of bones of different ages, meaning they could not all have been from the Viking Age.”

It seems they should have immediately doubted their dates. Did they actually believe people kept digging up the same site to add new bodies to it?

“Norway [2015] took in just 30,000 [refugees]; this year [2017] it has accepted just 2,000 so far. To Sylvi Listhaug, the country’s young immigration minister, this might still be a bit too much.”

Police are also sent out to areas where illegal immigrants are suspected of living and working. “If we find them, we send them out. That has also decreased crime in Norway, that’s very good.”....

“I ask Listhaug if she is getting used to being called cruel and heartless. How does it make her feel? Her response comes quickly: ‘I don’t give a damn,’ she says. She thinks her approach is right, and the consensus is wrong. And, as she says, an increasing number of other countries think the same. A new consensus might well be in the making.”

Sounds like a handling issue, not a biggie.

The problem with Sweden appears to be that their best warriors LEFT and settled in other lands during the Viking era.

Yup. The Danelaw.

The pink areas were under Viking control. Wessex was Anglo-Saxon.

Good read about the Vikings in England here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danelaw

At one time they ruled almost all of it, under Cnut the Great of Denmark.
