Lindisfarne has had a pivotal role in the history of the Vikings and their influence throughout the British Isles and Ireland. It was their first traumatic raid of 793AD, destroying the island’s sanctity and monastery that historians commonly regard as the beginning of The Viking Age in these islands. It was to last for nearly 300 years.
They brought with them their beliefs, customs, words and culture; they made an immeasurable contribution towards the evolution of modern day society. Lindisfarne’s Viking Mead range is an inspired reflection of their legacy.
