The Vikings (Revised Edition)
Dimensions: 5 x 8 inches
Far from being “wild, barbaric, axe-wielding pirates,” the Vikings created complex social institutions, oversaw the coming of Christianity to Scandinavia, and made a major impact on European history through trade, travel, and far-flung colonization.
This encyclopedic study brings together wide-ranging research on Viking art, burial customs, class divisions, jewelry, kingship, poetry, and family life. This revised edition has been updated to include recent discoveries. The result is a rich, compelling picture of an extraordinary civilization.
