About this item

Follow the Vikings from their prehistoric pagan origins to their transformation into Christian Europeans.

In 800, the Scandinavians were barbarians in longships bent only on plunder and rapine. But as these Norse warriors left their northern strongholds to trade, raid, and settle across wide areas of Europe, Asia and the North Atlantic, their violent and predatory culture left a unique imprint on medieval history. So much so that, by 1200, the Viking homelands had become an integral part of Latin Christendom. Northmen tells this story.

Focusing on key events, such as the sack of Lindisfarne in 793 and the murder of the saga-writer Snorri Sturluson in 1241, Northmen is written in authoritative and compelling prose. As Medieval history expert Dr. John Haywood tells the extraordinary story of the Viking Age, he sheds new light on the causes, impact, and eventual decline of Viking seafaring.
