Norwich

Norwich (Norse: Northwic) is a town in the county of Norfolk, England; it was once an Anglo-Saxon town in the kingdom of East Anglia during the early Middle Ages.

In the 9th century, the settlement was passed through by the Viking shieldmaiden Eivor Varinsdottir of the Raven Clan on her way to a forward camp.[1]

Behind the scenes

The general layout of the town appears to be based on how it looked in the 14th century.[2] In game it is depicted with old Roman walls, however, in reality the walls were built in 1297-1343.[3]

The tower of the church is based on the Church of St Mary the Blessed Virgin in Sompting, however, this is anachronistic as the tower was built between 960 and the end of the 11th century.[4] The in game church appears to stand in for the two Anglo-Saxon churches standing at the place of the later Norman cathedral.
