De la fin du VIIIe à la fin du XIIe siècle, des navigateurs scandinaves se lancent à la conquête de nouvelles terres, de la Baltique à la Méditerranée. Odin, Thor, Freyja et un panthéon d'autres divinités leur donnent force et courage pour la guerre ; la violence est considérée comme naturelle et va parfois jusqu'à des sacrifices humains. Le déclin de l'Empire carolingien conduit à des guerres de succession en Europe et les Vikings en tirent parti. Ils s'établissent dans les îles Britanniques, conquièrent la Normandie
