Description - Viking Age by Kristen Wolf

Though infamous for their pirating, active Vikings were actually only a fraction of the Scandinavian population during the so-called Viking Age. This exploration of their culture goes beyond the myths and into the prosaic realities and intimate details of family life; their attitude toward the more vulnerable members of society; their famed longships and extensive travels; and the role they played in the greater community. Includes images, maps, and a timeline of Viking history.
