Now in paperback, the superb narrative history which reveals how much Britain today owes to its Viking past. It draws upon new academic research and first-hand experience, discussing the relics and landscapes that the Vikings and their contemporaries fashioned and walked: their rune stones and ship burials, settlements and battlefields, poems and chronicles. Showing that Vikings - marauders and pillagers - were also colonialists and settlers, it offers a vital evocation of a forgotten world, its echoes in later history and its implications for the present.
