As well as being warriors and accomplished seamen, they were jewelers, sculptors and poets of great skill and originality: the forts, town sites, ships, burial mounds, carved stones, place names, sagas, art and artifacts they left behind substantiate their legendary exploits.
This is a revised and updated edition of James Graham-Campbell's authoritative account of the Viking world, based on recent archaeological research, with an important chapter on ships, shipwrights and seamen from Sean McGrail. The text is complemented by a wealth of illustrations, including maps and reconstruction drawings.
