The Vikings by Else Roesdahl
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


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.

Author Biography

Else Roesdahl is Reader in Medieval Archaeology at the University of Arhus, Denmark and special Professor in Viking Studues at the University of Nottingham. In 1988 she was awarded the Soren Gyldendal Prize for the Danish edition of THE VIKINGS.
