The Danelaw defined the boundary between the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms and the large bits of England that the Vikings had conquered through invasion. The Danelaw covers all the parts of England that the Vikings now ran, so that’s Northern and Eastern England. Viking rule finally ended when Eric Bloodaxe fled in 954 AD. Though this doesn’t last for long, the Danes will soon be back!
