Descrizione dell’editore

From the invasion of Britain to the siege of Paris, the Viking age was indeed one of the most tumultuous and formative periods of European history. But what of the forces behind the seismic raids and explorations? What of the ingenious craftsmanship behind the longboats that were beyond their time? Often, a farrago of myths and facts continues to portray a rather foggy image of the Vikings, but could the Vikings truly be the savage seafarers that history condemns them to be?

It also presents another view point of these fascinating people. Employing the latest archeological finds and various sources, it paints a different yet factual picture of the Vikings. The book delves into the many cultural aspects of the society: religion - the Nordic gods - social structure, cloth, house, and much more.
