Product description

Review

"It is quite a feat to write history this good... Everyone who visits the British Museum's Viking exhibition should go clutching a copy of this engaging and splendidly written book." (Dan Jones Sunday Times)

"Parker has a traveller's eye for landscape and a storyteller's sense of events and character; The Northmen's Fury is probably the most lively and well-informed introduction to the subject available today." (New Statesman)

"Particularly fascinating... [Parker] proves expert at treading a delicate line between scholarship and his relish for the fantastical." (Tom Holland The Times)

"This book is a treasury with treats galore. Lucid, comprehensive, it is a work of reference which deserves to become a classic." (Historical Novel Society)

"Perfectly timed for the forthcoming British Museum exhibition." (Sunday Times)

"Philip Parker has encapsulated the Viking story in this book." (CGA Magazine)

"[An] energetic and intelligent guide to the Viking world." (A.N. Wilson Sunday Telegraph)

"A detailed study that succeeds in conveying the impact of the Viking age... A fascinating read." (Martin Arnold Literary Review)

"Engrossing" (Mail on Sunday)
