Patterns of Power in Early Wales

Wendy Davies

Oxford University Press

The ninth, tenth, and eleventh centuries were a period of notable English and Scandinavian interest in Wales. This brought Vikings and Englishmen to Wales and Welshmen to England and Ireland. This chapter focuses on the Viking raids in Wales which began in the middle of the ninth century, and the issue of Scandinavian political presence in Wales. Journeys to eastern Ireland in this period took them to a Scandinavian sphere: Viking Dublin was founded in 841 and until the eleventh century was an essentially Scandinavian enclave.
