Abstract:
After a historical survey of the Scandinavian invasions and settlements there is a review of the documentary evidence which suggests the existence of an estate-like structure in pre-Viking Northumbria. The Scandinavians seem to have taken over these landblocks as going concerns. The place-name and documentary evidence for south Durham points not only to the presence of Scandinavian overlords and their followers but also to Scandinavian peasant farmers living on estates controlled by Anglo-Saxons. Sculptures such as those at Middleton and Sockburn could be the memorials of Scandinavians farming in the surrounding district for which these churches acted as foci. R N B
