This review is from: Ibn Fadlan's Journey to Russia: A Tenth-century Traveler from Baghdad to the Volga River (Paperback)
About the best known and the first eye witness account of the vikings and Northern Russia. A fantastic source piece. I do wish though that we had more source work from this period from non Byzantine sources. Highly recommend this book and wish more writings from this period had survived and indeed more people had recorded the era in this part of the world

5.0 out of 5 stars Ibn Fadlans's Journey through Russia, 6 Nov 2009

What a debt of gratitude we owe to those Arabic scribes who gave an impartial eye witness account of Vikings, unlike our Anglo Saxon scribes who had good cause to be bias. This book makes for compelling reading. A true window to the past and such detail for the time it was written. Brilliant!

This review is from: Ibn Fadlan's Journey to Russia: A Tenth-century Traveler from Baghdad to the Volga River (Paperback)
A must for any heathen, it is an outsiders observations of different folk, there customs rituals and belief structures. This translation into english is an excellent addition to any personnel library, the chapter on the Rus my particular favourite.
