Viking Fact Twenty Seven

The Vikings for all their extensive trading and travels preferred the Arab silver coins called dirhams for compensation. These coins have been unearthed in Viking settlements stretching from Harrogate, England to Gdansk, Poland to St Petersburg, Russia. Many of the coins were minted in Bagdad from 750 to 950 and had the year stamped on them.
