850

Differently from the Danes and Norwegians who organized major forays to the Western Europe, the Swedes mainly were limited to the trade on the eastern areas. No colonies were established on the Estonian coast and the impact of Scandinavia remained modest.

The Estonian area was rather a periphery for the Old Russian State and the impacts changing the circumstances were also not coming from the east.
