My teacher in the viking course have right! It's the BEST BOOK you can get on the subject and even if it's texts are highly academic they have such big amounts of information which ISEN'T included in many of the other ones touching this subjects (not at lest the other five ones I've read during the course Viking Age in Northern Europe and Along the Eastern Reads: Roesdahl-the Vikings/Hall-exploring the world of the vikings/Christiansen-Norsemen in the viking age/Haywood-pinguin historical atlas ...more

A book which combines many short chapters on any topic relevant to Vikings or the Scandinavian late Iron Age. A strong point is that many chapters are written by the relevant specialists instead of a single author who is trying to specialize in everything. A bad point is that this means that there's not much of a central theme connecting the chapters, which makes this more of a reference work than a bedtime story.
