About this title:

Synopsis: As the most notorious of the pagan hordes to descend on Christian Europe in the Early Middle Ages, the image of the Vikings has transcended the centuries; even today their name evokes images of murder, pillage and desecration. This graphic and complete history considers the totality of the Viking experience, taking their story from their origins in the fjords of Scandinavia to their great voyages and lasting impact on the wider world. Magnus Magnusson channels his years of writing and research in the field to produce a chronological account of Viking activity in the varied cultural areas of Europe with which they came into contact. Raiders, heathens and murderers, but also explorers, pioneers and artists; the remarkable contradictions that characterised the Viking Age are explored and illuminated.

From the Publisher: The Vikings hold a particular place in the history of the West, both mythologically and in the significant impact they had on Northern Europe. Magnus Magnusson’s indispensable study of this great people presents a rounded and fascinating picture of a nation who, in modern eyes, would seem to embody striking contradictions. They were undoubtedly pillagers, raiders and terrifying warriors, but they were also great pioneers, artists and traders—a dynamic people, whose skill and daring in their exploration of the world has left an indelible impression a thousand years on.

Sir Magnus Magnusson, the well–known television broadcaster, has been closely associated with history and archeology throughout his career. He has written and presented many historical documentaries for television and radio.
