- Anglo-Viking is used in the context of numismatics only. It is defined as the period from c. AD 875-954 in which there were settlements within England under the authority of Scandinavian rulers. In this way, it applies to coins issued by Viking East Anglia (c. 880-910), Viking Northumbria (c. 895-954) and at unspecified sites within the Danelaw (c. 875-c. 930). It is not used with reference to Scandinavian imitations of Anglo-Saxon coins, or to coins of Cnut and his sons in the 11thC, since that period of Danish rule did not fundamentally affect the basic 'Anglo-Saxon' character of either culture or coinage.
