It was in Seville where I first "encountered" the Vikings. They had attacked Seville in 840, [844?] which is why Sevillanos put the wall. [not sure of this. also maybe other enemies and the river itself.] Vikings went up the Guadalquivir "as far as Seville."
was moorish then
(wall gone now except a fragment, but you can see its trace in the flow of automobile traffic around the ancient city.)

The Vikings were there in 844. They robbed and murdered, and the Sevillanos built their city wall after that. The wall is gone now except a fragment, but you can see its trace in the main flow of automobile traffic around the ancient city inner city.

The Vikings invaded Ireland in 795. They established Dublin. They established, in fact, the idea of "town." This was one of their few durable cultural influences. Their religion and language left hardly a trace on the Irish culture, though some of them remained on the island and intermixed. Integrated, apparently.

established base on Liffey in 841. After a few decades they were driven out by native Irish, but they ruturned and by 917 had built a proper city of houses, streets and pathways.

Dublin was a major center for Viking trade.
