I'm all for an interdisciplinary approach to Germanic studies and was excited at the thought of reading a book that combined textual study with archaeology.

Unfortunately the book was written by an archaeologist who had little understanding of the literary sources and at times seemed to be manipulating the texts at her disposal in an attempt to construct her own Dark Age fantasy world.

I so wanted to enjoy this work but, I felt I was in very unsafe hands with this author.

Tajunnanräjäyttävä teos. Luin alusta loppuun henkeä pidätellen ja uusia tulkintoja ällistellen. Must-luettavaa Skandinavian rautakaudesta kiinnostuneille.

This book contains significant number of mistakes, simplifications, speculations and other shortcomings. Nicely looking cover attracts the attention, but the drive for popularity is too obvious.
It is obvious that the author cannot read historical sources in original.Book written from provincional perspective by self-made 'historian'. Hedeager just does not write well, and I guess her editors are third graders.
Good for children however..
