Did you know that Bromborough in the Wirral is thought to be the first place the Vikings from Dublin ever settled on the English mainland? That ancient link is demonstrated with a Viking cross in the local church. A great battle in which five English kings died fighting the Norse and Scots was also probably fought here in 937AD, 35 years after the settlement was established. A buried longboat was recently discovered at Meols a few miles away.
