Skeleton of Viking child discovered during excavation in Dublin

The dig has also established that Vikings continued living at the Dubh Linn even after the more famous Wood Quay settlement was established a kilometre away.

Major Viking site discovery described as ‘mind-blowing’
https://www.irishcentral.com/news/major ... -237416911

I can see Annagassan looking across Dundalk Bay from my cottage.

The Annals of Ulster record that in 851, Danish Vikings (the Dubhgall) attempted to attack the Norwegian Viking (Fingall) settlement at Annagassan at the southern end of Dundalk Bay and were heavily defeated. The following year, Norwegian Vikings based in Scotland were sent to attack the Danes in Carlingford Lough but their expedition was unsuccessful.

a lot of in-fighting with ye Scandinaviers.

Vikings didn't have horns! It's one of German ancestral myths cherished by the Nazis. It says that pale (or freckled) Vikings on horses invaded the darked-skinned people of the Indu Valley, imposed on them Hinduism, come up with svastika, curry, yoga and all that, and thus started the oldest culture in the history of civilisation. Or something like that.

If you grew horns during the lockdown, Collector, it's just because you've been hanging out with your local vegans too much :-)

Váru í horni
hvers kyns stafir
ristnir ok roðnir,
- ráða ek né máttak, -
lyngfiskr langr,
lands Haddingja
ax óskorit,
innleið dyra.

they had drinking horns, some for sure mistook their horns for helmets after empty their horns for mead.

"Norwigi" visits VikingTown (Liberties) in Dublin.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=19A53SyAUak

In a part of Dublin known as the Liberties, which is also where the Vikings settled 1000 years ago, there is a small community of rebel horse owners. And a few years ago, a travelling street musician who goes by the name, "The Musical Slave", accidentally crashed her van into the wall of one of their urban horse yards – and out came a horse and a few boys. One of them brought her for a spin with a horse and two-wheeler, and from that day on she was hooked. She ended up buying her own horse and moving him into the yard...

The Musical Slave is a street musician and storyteller from Bergen, on the west coast of Norway. She plays tropical punk, and sings about love, the forces of nature, and the world economy.

//
The Liberties is being gentrified to make room for Python data scientists Google/FB/Twitter/MS/Paypal and international MFE students.
