Were the Vikings, as contemporary description had it, a "valiant, wrathful, foreign, purely pagan people" who swept in from the sea to plunder and slaughter? Or were they unusually successful merchants, extortionists, and pioneer explorers? This book considers the latest research and presents a picture of the Vikings and their age. Excavations as far apart as Dublin and Newfoundland, York and Kiev, provide fascinating archaeological evidence, interpreted in this illustrated book.
