Event Details

The Vikings didn’t really use money before they arrived in England. At first, silver was the most common metal used for payment.

Traders carried small scales with them to weigh the silver. Once the Vikings began to settle in England they made their own coins.

 

Dr. Courtnay Konshuh holds a position of an Assistant Professor in the Department of History at the University of Calgary. She specializes in early medieval England, early medieval history, and teaches courses on the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings.
