While the Vikings are perhaps best known for accumulating wealth through plunder, tribute, and conquest, they were also successful traders. The Vikings developed several trading centres and long-distance trade routes during the Viking Age (c. C8th AD to C11th AD). The Vikings also established a "bullion economy" in which weighed silver, and to a lesser extent gold, was used as a means of exchange.
