4.0 out of 5 stars A good book on the vikings
Despite it's title this book is far more than just an historical atlas of the Vikings. Only a fifth of the books is devoted to maps as the rest of the book uses text, and a very good world timeline, to tell about the world during the Viking era.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book on the vikings, 4 May 1999

This review is from: The Penguin Historical Atlas of the Vikings (Penguin Historical Atlases) (Paperback)
Despite it's title this book is far more than just an historical atlas of the Vikings. Only a fifth of the books is devoted to maps as the rest of the book uses text, and a very good world timeline, to tell about the world during the Viking era. The book tells about the arts history and the literature of the Vikings, however it is the chapters on the Viking expansion, both eastwards and westwards that the book with its colourful maps is able to explain and lllustrate best.

I enjoy the links made thru the use of maps and the spread of centuries and countries it covers. Helps me put some recent visits to Scandinavia in perspective.
