File:North sea languages 900.png

This is part of the commons-picture Image:Old norse, ca 900.PNG focused on the North Sea.

This is the approximate extent of Old Norse and related languages in the early 10th century around the North Sea. The red area is the distribution of the dialect Old West Norse, the orange area is the spread of the dialect Old East Norse and the green area is the extent of the other Germanic languages with which Old Norse still retained some mutual intelligibility
