Example text

For the Scandinavians, navigation was ruled by the desire for pillage, for commerce, and for the colonization of new lands. Viking navigation and colonization in the Atlantic Ab ira Normannorum libera nos, Domine! From the end of the eighth century, the terror the Scandinavians brought, not only to the coastal areas but far into a country’s interior, by means of their rapid drakkars, spread westward. 22 Legends and reality before the Iberians The raiders were drawn to the ports and coasts of western Europe that were free of any serious defences: after two or three days at sea, they had direct access to booty, treasures, monasteries and churches, and slaves to take from terrorized populations.

The frozen sea discovered near Thule, some 66° latitude north, was doubtless not an ice flow but an ice drift, a spectacle disconcerting to sailors accustomed to the sunlit south-western shores, rich in wine and salt. Such latitudes are doubtless too distant for the six days’ sail north of Britain it is said to have taken the Massilian to reach Thule, which, therefore, could correspond only to Shetland. 26 Massilian navigation, however, like that of the other Greek cities, very early took commerce, rather than exploration, as its sole object.

According to Dicuil’s chronicle, in 795 a group of Irish clerics left Ireland in January and arrived in Iceland on the first day of February, where they remained until the beginning of August. During the summer solstice, the monks remarked that the sun only went slowly down below the horizon, the remaining light being sufficient to allow a man to carry out some task such as ‘looking for lice in one’s shirt’. Dicuil confirms that, although it had been claimed that ‘Thile’ was covered in ice and cast into perpetual gloom in winter, this was utterly contradicted by the monks’ experiences, as they were able to reach the island’s coasts during the cold season without encountering any ice, and showed also that there was always an alternation between daylight and night except during the summer solstice.
