Debatable.

By then the Danish foothold was massive. Kings and Queens have come and gone, the Viking influence that started back in Lindisfarne with a few Danish turnip kickers who thought it would be more fun to sail the sea, plunder here and there, was in 1066 felt all over the country, language and customs had changed because of the Vikings, the influence is still here to this day.

All town names ending in BY which is very noticeable here in Lincolnshire is a good example.
Bairn is another example.

We sure did kick some ass back then :p

He was the Duke of Normandy, and they were called Normans, because they were men from the north. William was of Norse descent.

Ditto the Normans - it's because of their hands-off attitude to Scotland (in return for some prime hunting and property perks for the nobles) that they have a separate legal system from E&W, for example.

We have different names for animals and their meat (e.g. cattle/beef, swine/pork) because it was the "conquered" Anglo Saxons who looked after the animals, but their Norman masters who ate them.

But the degree of conquering is dubious - they seem to have been assimilated. Within a few hundred years French was being taught as a foreign language here...

Lots of Scottish & NE English dialect words have Norse roots.

A few years ago Michael Wood did a wonderful series on TV where he looked at the history of Engand over the last 2000 years via the records and archeology etc of just one place - a village right on the A6, a road which for a lot of its length follows the old border between Mercia and The Danelaw, so you could see within a few miles either way differences in placenames and family names due to Old English vs Old Norse.
