Description

Just before the year 1000 a young Viking named Thorvald the Far-farer turned his back on the pagan gods of his fathers to preach the Christian gospel, travelling to Jerusalem, the golden heart of all medieval world maps. A thousand years later Victoria Clark retraces his epic voyage to discover how the dramatic events of Thorvald's Europe still resonate today. This a compelling, highly acclaimed blend of history and travel, in the manner of William Dalrymple's bestselling From the Holy Mountain.
