Interesting topic. Here's a follow-up question. Just how much trade did England have with the rest of the world and what were the commodities?

I'm especially interested in where all the gold they used to pay off the Danes and Vikings came from.

Hi Pete - thanks for the question; I've updated the post above to include what I know ! As ever, what we don't know is far outweighed by the snippets of information we do have.

Thomas Hudson

Thanks for dedicating a whole podcast to the subject! Really interesting stuff there, completely blew my assupmtions apart with regards to how much interaction there was and how far a field!
The coin sent to the pope had me laughing out loud while listening on earphones outside, luckily no one around to see me!

David Crowther

Hi Thomas - well it was only a short podcast ! It was a good question though, I enjoyed looking into it. The coin thing made me laugh too. I really hope nobody told him ...
