What event is taken as the beginning of the Viking Age?

the union between Dennmark and Norway
the raid on Lindisfarne monastery
death of Horik I, the King of the Danes
first invasions on Baltic Sea shores
n 793, a Viking raid on Lindisfarne caused much consternation throughout the Christian west. The amazement of the English at the raids from the sea must have been matched by the amazement of the raiders at such (to them) vulnerable, wealthy and unarmed settlements.
