Description
Between the 8th and 11th centuries, the Vikings surged from their Scandinavian homeland to trade, plunder, explore, and invade, from Newfoundland to Baghdad. They are alternately seen as great seafarers and desperate outcasts, noble heathens and oafish pirates, the last pagans and the first of the modern Europeans. This concise study of Viking history aligns medieval chronicles, Norse sagas, and Muslim accounts with modern genetic profiling and climatology. It explains why the Danish king Harald Bluetooth lent his name to a 21st-century wireless technology; which future saint laughed as she buried foreign ambassadors alive; and how the Vikings ultimately became us.
