Varangian Trade Routes

Most people know that the Norse raided and traded in Western Europe but fewer people are aware that they also rode the river-systems East, ending up trading with the Arabs of the Caliphate and the Greeks of Constantinople(also known as the Eastern Roman Empire, which was founded by Constantine.).

The map above shows the routes taken by the Rus. It is the purple one that Lord Ormagundr followed. His home is now near Kiev.
