While Viking Age Scandinavia had a large number of white people, there’s historical evidence for immigration (forced slavery or otherwise) from Africa, the Middle East, and theoretically any country that they traded with. For example, Chinese silk has been discovered in Viking Aged archaeological sites, opening the doors for Chinese immigrants as well.
