The popular image of the Vikings is of tall red-headed men, raping and pillaging their way around the coast of Europe, stopping only to ransack monasteries and burn longships. But the violent Vikings of the 8th century widely became the pious Christians of the 11th century. This book takes a global look at this key period, exploring all the major areas of Viking settlement. This is a stimulating and accessible approach to the Viking Age. Focusing on Vikings as Christian rulers and their followers opens up the question of just what we mean when we think of Vikings. Violent barbarians of legend have their place in this book but the authors look more deeply at what it meants to live and prosper in early medieval societies, taking the end of the Viking Age beyond where it is often assumed to be and ensuring that the story is told in terms which make a truly international one. It is in 14 chapters and 255p.
