5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent and up-to-date work on a fascinating story, 1 April 1998
By A Customer
The story of Norse Greenland, the settlement at the end of the earth, and its disappearance, has fascinated scholars and laypeople for 500 years.
Kirsten Seaver has produced the best and most readable work on the subject in 50 years, incorporating the large amount of very recent study being done in the field with acute insight and a clear narrative.
(Although it means there is not much point in me writing my book on the subject :( )

5.0 out of 5 stars From a review on the cover "a model of how to put across a complex theme in an easy to read manner", 3 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Frozen Echo: Greenland and the Exploration of North America, c.A.D.1000-1500 (Paperback)
Does exactly what it says on the tin and does it superbly.

A scholarly, sceptical account of the literary and archaeological materials currently available.

No earth shattering revelations but there are too many unknowns in this field.

From a review on the cover "a model of how to put across a complex theme in an easy to read manner".

I loved.it, if you like real history you probably will.
