Synopsis

Viking Mersey Scandinavian Wirral, West Lancashire and Chester by Stephen Harding

1100 years ago marked the start of a Viking invasion of the Mersey region, which reached out into Chester, West Lancashire and beyond. The Vikings left behind place-names like Kirkby, Kirby, Meols and Croxteth, which can also be found in Iceland, another region they were invading. This book is about these people in peace and war, their customs, traditions, pastimes, their paganism and their Christianity, their governments and their financial centre at Chester. It also includes a section on how modern genetic research is being used to discover the descendants of these Invaders in the modern day population.
