Beyond the Northlands
Viking Voyages and the Old Norse SagasBook - 2016
The medieval Norsemen may be best remembered as monk murderers and village pillagers, but this is far from the whole story. Throughout the Middle Ages, longships transported hairy northern voyagers far and wide, where they not only raided but also traded, explored, and settled new lands, encountered unfamiliar races, and embarked on pilgrimages and crusades. To explore the sagas and the world that produced them, Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough now takes her own trip through the dramatic landscapes that they describe.
