Just take a look at the picture.
Dont be frightened

Now, when you open the link, it will show you, that the anglo-saxon raids, were conducted by Denmark.

If you accept, that they were conducted by Denmark, it means i win the debate.

On the otherhand, if you fail to acknowledge that fact, and pretend you did not see it, it means i also win the debate, but you carry on in delusion

Which is it to be?

Your picture does not refute anything I've said.
There was no Denmark at the time, just like there was no Germany or England.


There might have been no Germany.
But there certainly was a sea fairing people in Denmark and Norway, dating back to between 300 and 400BC, that were using Viking vessels

The Hjortspring boat (Danish: Hjortspringbåden) is a vessel designed as a large canoe, from the Scandinavian Pre-Roman Iron Age. It was built circa 400–300 BCE. The hull and remains were rediscovered and excavated in 1921–1922 from the bog of Hjortspring Mose on the island of Als in Sønderjylland, southern Denmark. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hjortspring_boat


Whether the Norse people referred to themselves as Norse, or Danish, during 400bc, i could not really care.
Equally, i could not care about the fact, at 400BC, those boats were referred to as Hjortspring, and not Viking.

Language evolves.

But seems like the foundations of the British Royal Navy went back to 400BC
