When the Vikings landed in Britain in 449 AD

…they were but one of many waves of invasions by people of the same stock — Jutes, Norsemen, Danes, Saxons and Angles from the continent of Europe. These were branches of the Israel peoples found where Israel was lost after their Assyrian captivity. Ancient historians, Herodotus and Pliny and others, tell us that they sprang from a people called Scythians and Sakai in Media. Their movement to the British Isles was God “leading the blind by ways they know not” to be the island nation of Jeremiah 31:10 — “He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.”
