Nature et mode d'action des bandes armées vikings : quelques réflexions sur la seconde moitié du IXe siècle

Abstract : This article focuses on the composition, the training conditions, and the functioning of armed Viking groups during the raids of the second half of the 9th century, attempting to follow them along maritime (and land) routes in order to determine their origins and to follow certain individuals. These groups, small in size, sometimes joined together with others to form larger armies, such as the « Great Army » that devastated England starting in 865. The organisation of these groups and the nature of the sources, however, make it difficult to reconstruct their movements.
