A study of the relationships between the Vikings in Ireland & Britain - the descendants of one Ivarr. A background in Viking history is a must as this tome relies upon the reader have some basic knowledge of this period of history.

It details the relationship between the main players among the Viking hierarchy in Ireland, Wales, Scotland & Britain. The family relationships are explained as best as possible considering the conflicting texts - and the author provides as much contemporary sources as possible.

A must read for the scholar and student of this period.
