The enduring perception that the Viking raids targeted the Christian Church, however, is a myth born rather of the bias of the Old English historians than of any discrimination on the part of the Vikings, and by the 830s their attacks were clearly aimed primarily at Europes economic centers. Mark Harrison investigates the lifestyle, the motivation and the status of these early Scandinavian warriors.
