Audio Book Summary

Raiders and traders, settlers and craftsmen, the medieval
Scandinavians who have become familiar to history as Vikings never lose
their capacity to fascinate, from their ingeniously designed longboats
to their stormy pantheon of gods and goddesses. Robert Ferguson is a
sure guide across what he calls 'the treacherous marches which divide
legend from fact in Viking Age history'. His long familiarity with the
literary culture of Scandinavia is combined with the latest
archaeological discoveries to reveal a sweeping picture of one of
history's most amazing civilizations.

  • Ruth B.

    A very thorough, wide ranging history of the Vikings. Full of place names and people and mythologies. It helps to have the hard copy to see the maps and see the spellings of the names and location. The reader is amazingly wonderful with his reading of old Norsk, old English and all the old place names. There are some really amusing stories and details, and the author has a quiet sense of humor that appears occasionally like a sparkly gem in the hoards of names, dates and places. I've enjoyed it very much.
