Vikings in England by Dawn Hadley

Book Description

The viking invasion and settlement in England has been the subject of a large and complex body of scholarship, with the consensus of opinion among scholars as to its exact nature and influence shifting considerably over the years. This is a fascinating new study which will make an important addition to the literature on the Scandinavians and the settlement in England in the ninth and tenth centuries. D. M. Hadley offers a focused and interdisciplinary discussion of often neglected sources. Topics covered include the development of current debates regarding the settlement, Anglo-Scandinavian political accommodation, the differences and similarities between Scandinavian rural settlement and Scandinavians in the urban environment, the conversion of Scandinavians to Christianity, and burial practices and associated issues of ethnicity, gender and social status. A clear and exhaustive summary of the available archaeological, historical and linguistic evidence, this book offers a comprehensive and authoritative starting point for all researchers and students investigating the viking settlement of Britain.
