The Viking raids sudden appearance by the end of the 8th century are attribued to overpopulation and opportunity. The increase in trade in Europe meant increased chances for piracy.

Of these weapons, the sword was the most popular and was considered with great respect, especially in the case of swords that had been handed down from generation to generation.
