Lindisfarne — Where the Vikings entered England

In the first episode of the TV show Vikings, a bunch of Vikings set out for that island across the North Sea, which we know as England. They landed on a smaller island called Lindisfarne that had a monastery, which they destroyed. That part of the show was true.

The Vikings did come across to England and their first stop was a small island on the northeastern coast of England — an island known as Lindisfarne. Its old Celtic name was Medcaut. And I just went to see it.
