The word was initially used to describe not a people, but rather the activity of exploring, piracy, or raiding.

After being revived in English in the 19th century, the term “Viking” came to represent the Scandinavian seafarers who ventured beyond their borders to explore, raid, and ultimately settle between about 790 and 1100 A.D.
