I read this book to learn about Vikings for school.
The Vikings came from Denmark, Norway and Sweden. We sometimes call the Vikings "sea raiders". There once was a King called Cnut, who had a long war with England, Then they decided they would have peace. After England's king died Cnut was made King of England. He was a lot like an English king because he was Catholic. I also happened to watch a BBC movie on Vikings. However the movie was wrong because it said the Vikings were the second Europeans to go to North America when they were the first.
