Pioneering scholarly works on the Viking Age reached a small readership in Britain.Linguistics traced the Viking-Age origins of rural idioms and proverbs.Monks were killed in the abbey, thrown into the sea to drown, or carried away as slaves along with the church treasures, giving rise to the traditional (but unattested) prayer—A furore Normannorum libera nos, Domine, "Free us from the fury of the Northmen, Lord." Three Viking ships had beached in Weymouth Bay four years earlier (although due to a scribal error the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle dates this event to 787 rather than 789), but that incursion may have been a trading expedition that went wrong rather than a piratical raid. The Viking devastation of Northumbria's Holy Island was reported by the Northumbrian scholar Alcuin of York, who wrote: "Never before in Britain has such a terror appeared".Vikings were portrayed as wholly violent and bloodthirsty by their enemies."It is almost 75pc higher than the annual average take-up at the mid-year point for the previous five years, and 68pc higher than the take-up recorded in the first half of 2016." CBRE reports that prime rents in Dublin are now approximately €673 per sq m (€62.50 per sq ft).Ronald Quinlan While Dublin may be holding its own in the battle for Brexit business, with banking giants such as Bank of America, Barclays and JP Morgan all committing to increase their presence here, the overall economic impact of the UK's departure from the EU will be negative.It is the period of history when Scandinavian Norsemen explored Europe by its seas and rivers for trade, raids, colonisation and conquest.In this period, the Norsemen settled in Norse Greenland, Newfoundland, and present-day Faroe Islands, Iceland, Norway, Scotland, England, Ireland, the Netherlands, Germany, Ukraine, Russia, and Turkey.
