Summary
"In this accessible book, the whole narrative of the Viking story is examined from the eighth to the 11th century. Arranged thematically, [the book] examines the Norsemen from exploration to religion to trade to settlement to weaponry to kingdoms to their demise and legacy. But today questions remain: what prompted the first Viking raids? What stopped their expansion? And how much of the tales of murder, rape and pillage is myth?" --Publisher
