And Iceland was just one of the many places colonized/conquered by the Norse. So was much of Western Europe, particularly England.
Yep though their influence in England was done by 1300 A.D. I understand. Also the Romans, Franks, etc. all played their part. The name England is actually a corruption of Angle Land = 'land of the Angles' for that matter. Tolkien was a prof. of Languages and wrote not of of Beowulf but of Sir Gwain and the Green Knight among other papers. He also wrote some short fictions like "Leaf by Niggle."
