3.0 out of 5 stars Frustratingly lacking in anything new, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sadly this book falls between the glossy excitement of the recent bbc book, and any detail backed by archaeological findings. Genetics and anything which supports something other than her viewpoint that there was limited Norse influence in England is glossed over. The late great Julian Richard's book Viking Age England is better as a background to the story. However the further reading and bibliography makes up for the one sided view.

Readable, informative, exciting, everything you'd expect from Michael Wood. He brings dull manuscripts to life, history so close you can almost touch it.

I adore the way Tony embraces the reader, welcomes them into his self depreciating humour filled world as if they were members of his own family.
