the Viking raids on the british isles left a linguistic legacy. This heritage lives on in English by old norse loanwords that window, the law, the sister and egg. The legacy is also evident in a long series of place names – in particular in the north of England. Kirk in Kirkstall, for example, from fornnordiskans words for the church, kirkja, -gate in the Briggate from the street, -village in the heart of Grimsby from by and -thorpe in Scunthorpe from þorp, ’torp’.
The modern exportorden from Swedish to English are more rare. A few words that quite recently have been borrowed into is the lingonberry, orientation, ombudsman, salmon, and the smorgasbord.

nordbornas ingenious designed ships, and a nose for business – or rather pillaging – which contributed to the dissemination of old norse words. Perhaps it is period that it is now plogga, a phenomenon that spatter and jump of the health - and environmental consciousness, which looks out to conquer the world.
instead used for viking forays reminiscent of the invasions and the long (albeit eco-friendly) travel spreading the movement the seeds of green inspiration.
