The Oxford Illustrated History of the VikingsBook - 1997
Were the Vikings, as contemporary description had it, a valiant, wrathful, foreign, purely pagan people who swept in from the sea to plunder and slaughter? Or were they unusually successful merchants, extortionists, and pioneer explorers? This book, by international scholars, considers the latest research and presents a picture of the Vikings and their age.
