Description - The Vikings by Else Roesdahl
Far from being just "wild, barbaric, axe-wielding pirates", the Vikings created complex social institutions, oversaw the coming of Christianity to Scandanavia and made a major impact on European history through trade, travel and far-flung consolidation. This revised and updated edition brings together the latest research on Viking art, burial customs, class divisions, jewellery, kingship, poetry and family life.
