CHRISTIANSAND (KRISTIANSAND), a fortified seaport of Norway, the chief town of a diocese (stilt), on a fjord of the Skagerrack, 175 m.
The Skagerrack bounds Jutland to the north and north-west.
Skagen, or the Skaw, a long, low, sandy point, stretches far into the northern sea, dividing the Skagerrack from the Cattegat.
The exact etymology of vikingr itself is not certain: for we do not know whether vik is used in a general sense (bay, harbour) in this connexion, or in a particular sense as the Vik, the Skagerrack and Christiania Fjord.
The North Sea coast (western) and Skagerrack coast (north-western) consist mainly of a sweeping line of dunes with wide lagoons behind them.
