Anglo-Scandinavian is an academic term referring to the archaeological and historical periods during the 8th to 13th centuries in which there was migration to - and occupation of - the British Isles[1] by Scandinavians generally known as Norsemen or Vikings. It is used in distinction from Anglo-Saxon.

The term is also used in linguistic studies covering the same period.[2]
