Summary
From Finland to Newfoundland and Jelling to Jerusalem, follow in the wake of the Vikings -- a transformative story of a people that begins with paganism and ends in Christendom. Focusing on key events, including the sack of Lindisfarne in 793 and the Battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066, medieval history expert John Haywood recounts the saga of the Viking Age, from the creation of the world through to the dwindling years of halfhearted raids and elegiac storytelling in the thirteenth century
Summary
Follow the Vikings from their prehistoric pagan origins to their transformation into Christian Europeans
