Product Description

Review

'This book sets aside some of the myths and legends and, whilst focusing on the history, does not neglect the wider cultural impact of the raiders from the north'

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very well written and accessible overview of the Viking impact on the British Isles. Chapters include: Who were the Vikings?; Raiding and warfare; Where did the Vikings settle?; Language and literacy; The hammer and the cross: belief and conversion; Town life; Trade and treasures; Viking society; The Viking legacy. This is written as an introduction to the subject but, with its well paced style, up-to-date examples, thoughtful analysis and good range of illustrations it will still be of interest to the experienced student of the Vikings and very helpful to anyone starting their exploration of Vikings.

A very interesting book delivered before time and wrapped into a schockproof envelope against wetness, as well. The book is in fair condition and is one of the next volumes I take for reading.

Explains clearly that the Vikings were far more than just a bunch of bloodthirsty pirates but were one of the "empires" o their day
