Summary
Divided into five chapters covering the entire history of the Vikings, the book begins by exploring who these peoples were - and who they were not. For while there is no doubt that some Vikings launched bloodthirsty attacks in this period, pillaging communities and plundering treasure, many more were peaceful traders and settlers. The middle chapters deal with the Viking invasions and conquests of Anglo-Saxon lands that took place in the eighth and ninth centuries, as well as the great voyages of exploration that took these horned warriors out across the Atlantic Ocean to what are now Greenland and Canada. These chapters will also go beyond the battles and adventures to look at the everyday life of the people, to examine how and what they traded, what Viking village life was like and how they made and sailed their famous long ships. The book concludes by summing up the Viking legacy through an examination of their art, culture, literature and enduring influence on the world
