Vikings in Anlaby

- Speaker Peter Asquith Cowan


15 Whitefriargate, Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU1 2ER


The aim of the Talk is to provide a broad understanding of the impact the Scandinavian invasions of the East Riding had on the language, culture and political landscape of this region. To assess how it has survived the passage of time.

It also examines the place names of Scandinavian settlements and aims to distinguish them from their Anglian neighbours. Explorers, traders and merchants. Cultured and well travelled they loved fine gold jewellery.


This talk hopes to entertain and inform and leave those who attend with a deeper appreciation of the Vikings. To eradicate the long held view that they were savage barbarian pirates whose sole aim was to destroy, burn, rape and harass. Leaving listeners with a new appreciation of our Viking ancestors.
