Vikings : The North Atlantic Saga
Vikings : The North Atlantic Saga Description:
Vikings: The North Atlantic Saga celebrates and explores the Viking saga from the combined perspectives of history, archaeology, oral tradition, literature, and natural science. The book's contributors chart the spread of marauders and traders in Europe as well as the movement of farmers and explorers throughout the North Atlantic and into the New World. Incorporating a wealth of recent information, this generously illustrated book describes a first millennium culture far more complex and entrepreneurial than the horned-helmeted raiders of popular imagination.
