Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. DJ a little rubbed at edges. Mildly bumped at head and tail of spine.

This is an account of the Norsemen in the period A. D. 800-1200. To understand the Vikings, the society, technology, art and literature of these vital people, a vast amount of evidence of very different kinds has to be considered. Some of this evidence is literary, philological and archaeological; parts of the evidence only came to light in 1967 and 1968 excavations; some of it has been intensively studied and argued about in a host of languages for 200 years or more.Illustrated with B&W photographs.
