This title, a perfect guide to the Viking age, offers an exhaustive survey of the archaeology and history of medieval Scandinavia during the eighth and ninth centuries. The author begins his historical tour at the twilight of the Iron Age in Germany as the foundations of Viking society can be found there. Rather than concentrating on the warrior aspects, he looks at differences within Scandinavian societies such as the art of war, the expansion of Scandinavia, writing, religion and how these societies functioned. These differences are demonstrated through objects from the Scandinavian sphere and numerous photographs of reconstructions of objects which help to visualise the life of the Norsemen.
