Jane Kershaw shows impressively how Viking women can be found in the archaelogical record. (Harold Mytum, British Archaeology)
This volume is a wonderful asset to Viking Studies, it is well written and presented in a logical form and provides a clear route through the complexities of this range of metal jewellery finds. This book should now be required reading by all who work with material culture, be it Scandinavian, Anglo-Scandinavian or otherwise. (Colleen Batey, Networks and Neighbours)
this is hugely informative and very well-written study of a complex body of material. (Victoria Whitworth, Early Medieval Europe)
Readers of this smart and well-argued book may be surprised (and impressed) by how much information the author can tease from metal-detector finds. (Nancy Wicker, Cambridge Archaeological Journal)
the field of Viking studies will be invigorated by this new study, containing material and interpretations which will be a benchmark for discussions for years to come. (Soren M. Sindbaek, Medieval Archaeology)
