Description:
In the ninth and tenth centuries, the Vikings created an unrivalled cultural network that spanned four continents. Adventurers, farmers, traders, conquerors and sailors, the Vikings were both peaceful and fierce, fighting or bargaining their way through as far as Constantinople in the East, North America and Greenland in the North, the British Isles in the West as well as into the Mediterranean. This book explores the core period of the Viking age from a global perspective, examining how the Vikings drew influences from Christian Europe and the Islamic world and how they created a lasting historical impact on our world today.
