Exceedingly interesting, enlightening and even entertaining. Fabulous content and detail. Great images and historical examples from sagas and international history. If you have an interest in vikings and even if you think you know your stuff this is highly recommended. It covers so many aspects of the Viking world from social position, national politics, rulers and leaders, types of ships, armour and weapons, joining an army or going o a Strandhogg and even what to do with the loot you earn and those that die. A thoroughly enjoyable book for all ages.
Want to adventure throught the lands of the Vikings? The height of the Vikings is an amazing period of time and there is a lot of great fiction that is based on historical facts from that period and place. Rebecca Wilson has written a guide to the genre and to some of the best works in the genre.
