Abstract: Vikings have been launching massive attacks on the coasts and rivers of Europe. The fleets described counted frequently 60, 120 or 240 ships.

These supplies and the cargo ships dedicated to carry them were stored in a place somewhere off the coast, in a naval base. We may have identified one of these bases in Gascony, France.
