Sources for the study of Scandinavian influence on Old and Middle English

These pages are intended as a resource for students of the history of English and for those interested in language contact phenomena. We will be posting documentary evidence and photographs relevant to the type and the extent of the effects of the Viking invasions and settlements of the late Old English period on the syntax, morphology and phonology of English. Discussions of this evidence will also be available here.

Suggestions for additions to these pages are welcome. Please send them to:
