Summary
Vikings have a fearsome reputation as terrifying and brutal warriors, raiding other lands and killing without mercy. They were expert fighters, but also pioneers of seafaring exploration and they traded far and wide. Through artefacts and excavations, this volume explores the Viking world by examining - among other things - longships that were designed especially for fighting, the places they travelled to in order to populate new lands or trade goods such as silver and slaves, and the gods they worshiped to give them victory in battle or ensure a glorious afterlife. The book also invites readers to use their own imaginations to think about what it would be like to live in Viking times. Would you have been brave enough to take part in a battle to capture an enemy town?
