Wave over wave of Vikings cut through the North Sea and the Atlantic. In the east they portaged across Poland, penetrating Russia as far as the Caspian and Black Seas to the Mediterranean. Greed for glory and plunder, lust for freedom and land lured them to England, Sicily, Greenland, Ireland, and as far as Newfoundland in the New World. They colonized England, Greenland, Russia, and Iceland. Between the eighth and eleventh centuries, bands of scandinavians whom we have come to call Vikings played a significant part in reshaping the medieval world from Russia and Byzantium in the east to the Atlantic Islands and Newfoundland in the west as well as on the European continent.
