The second edition of this lively and comprehensive book provides a forceful reassessment of the role of the Vikings in history. Drawing on archaeological, literary, as well as historical evidence, the author describes the Viking expeditions overseas, and their transformation from terrifying raiders to assimilated settlers whose rich culture played an influential role in European civilization.
