Vikings in Furness
We have evidence of the Vikings in Furness from several sources: placenames, artefacts dug up and runic inscription.
The geography of the area would also strongly suggest that the Vikings at least came ashore here. Morecambe Bay is notorious for strong tides, shallow waters and dangerous quicksands. There are few natural deep water harbours but an exception are the waters round Piel and Roa Island.
