I read only one fictionalized historical book about the Vikings, but it had it all. Sixth or eighth? century Vikings, roaming the seas around Europe. Written by Bengttson, (I think), the title: Red Orm (Röde Orm). I read it in Hungarian translation. A wonderful book, comparable only to the "Northwest Passage" by Kenneth Roberts (or Rogers). Both in the same genre, equally exciting, total immersion, full-experience books. The latter, in the colonial days of America, the English fighting the French and the Injuns. A must-read, both books, for older adolescent boys. Just enough testing of the characters for their stamina, strength and resistance, and just enough gore, in both books, to excite but not scare an older child or younger adult.
Sixth is too early.
Britain got the brunt of the earliest of the vikings little pleasure trips.
The most famous of these is the raid on Lindisfarne, though there were sightings in the year before, the date for the raid on St. Cuthberts was Jan 793.
Those priests got what they deserved. All that bloody gold whilst their parishioners went hungry. Stick them like pigs!
Modus operandi for most people at all times. Both the doings of the vikings and the priests.

I think that MOs do vary. The appearance of the Vikings was quite a sea change - excuse the pun. Saxon Britain was fairly peaceful and settled, since the kingdoms had reached accord about territorial claims.
