By bringing together short essays by the experts in each field, eg Hall on York, this book comprehensively covers all aspects of the Viking age. The bibliography on each chapter alone is worth its weight in hacksilver. The only element lacking is the recent genetic evidence which seems to suggest eg widescale Danish settlement in eastern and northern England and a greater Russian involvement than was known 5 years ago.
