Proof that Norse Vikings had contact with British Isles pre-AD793

New finds in Viking excavations in Norway show that there had been interaction between the Norse and the British Isle pre-AD793 (the normally accepted start date of the Viking Age). Archeaologist point out that it is not necessarily war-booty from raids found in the graves in Norway, but could easily be items of status which we acquired through trading.

Yet more evidence that the AD793 demarcation date for the start of the Viking Age is likely not as clean cut and simple as many have portrayed it.
