From the late 700s to the early 1000s, waves of strange and ferocious warriors from the barren lands of the North routinely swept into Britain and the Western Roman Empire. Plundering and pillaging, they left ruins in their wake; their trembling victims never knew when or where they would strike next.
The Vikings, hailing from Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, yet beholden to no single king, government, or god, fought for personal glory, material wealth, and a longing for adventure. They roamed as far as the Arab world, always following the code, “Live hard, die with honor.”
Author Martina Sprague casts a fresh light and scholarly eye on these fiercely independent people.
