Discovering Hidden Temporal Patterns in Behavior and Interaction
Under the Glacier, Paperback (June 2005)

Vikings, Paperback (November 2003)» View all books by Magnus Magnusson
The Vikings hold a particular place in the history of the West, both symbolically and in the significant impact they had on Northern Europe. Magnus Magnusson's indispensable study of this great period presents a rounded and fascinating picture of a people who, in modern eyes, would seem to embody striking contradictions.
UK Kirkus Review » Lindisfarne, or Holy Island, is one of the most romantic isles off the British coast and it is steeped in history going back to pagan times and beyond. For such an isolated spot of land, Lindisfarne has played a surprisingly significant part in the history of the British Isles. Various saints are associated with the place, pilgrims flocked there in their thousands (and still do), the Romans and Vikings left their mark and today the island is still a flourishing place of tourism and nature. Magnusson tells how the island captured his own imagination many years ago and he charts its course through history in a personable style that transports the reader not only through history but also through the changing seasons of this ancient shrine of Celtic Christianity. He starts thousands of years in the past and comes through to the present day, all the time enlivening his text with anecdotes and points of little-known interest. (Kirkus UK)
