      2 days ago  New research has revealed a lost Viking waterway running through the Orkney Mainland, connecting the North Atlantic and Scapa Flow, possibly forming the equivalent of an ancient ‘highway’. The results, to be published in the Journal of Wetland Archaeology, are a collaboration between the Universities of the Highlands and Islands, St Andrews. Written around AD by an unnamed Icelandic author, the Orkneyinga Saga is an intriguing fusion of myth, legend and history. The only medieval chronicle to have Orkney as the central place of action, it tells of an era when the islands were still part of the Viking world, beginning with their conquest by the kings of Norway in the ninth century/5(52).

      The Vikings reigned over Caithness, Orkney and the Shetland Isles from A.D. until the Treaty of Perth in A.D. Norn, a dialect of Old Norse, was spoken in these parts well into the 16th I wasn't surprised to find a pub in Wick pub called Hagar's Lounge.   A study of Old Norse names combined with modern scientific methods, remote sensing geophysical mapping and sediment samples has revealed a lost Viking waterway running through the Orkney Mainland, connecting the North Atlantic and Scapa Flow, possibly forming the equivalent of an ancient ‘highway’.

      Viking settlements soon appeared in the British Isles, western France, and Russia, as well as on previously uninhabited North Atlantic islands. Viking settlers left lasting imprints as they intermarried and joined the cultures of their adopted homes. Towns in England, Ireland, France, and Russia today still bear names derived from Norse words. Excavation of a Viking-Age Cemetery at Cumwhitton, Cumbria.
