Vikings were the pirates of the North Sea. They terrorised the coasts of Europe with their killing and pillaging. Vikings also ravaged the Dutch coastal region of Frisia. The attacks began in 810, when Danish Vikings attacked Frisia with a fleet numbering more than 200 ships. The ferocious Vikings only stopped their looting when their victims paid them a large ransom in silver. But they often came back in the years that followed.

We Vikings takes you back to the time when Vikings frequently raided Frisia. Discover how families were devastated by kidnappings, houses were burned down and villages were destroyed. But you will also get to know another side of the Vikings.
