Omtale: A history of the vikings
This text discusses the Vikings and their realm; the lands of Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. It includes a discussion of their civilization and culture, and their many sided achievements at home and abroad. A narrative follows the development of these Northern peoples - the Nordmenn - from their origins and the legendary pre-history to the military triumphs of Canute and the defeat of Harald Hardrada at Stamford Bridge in 1066, which symbolically ended the Viking age. The book recounts the Vikings' exploits in war, trade, and colonization: the assault on Western Christendom; the trading and military ventures to the Slav and Muslim worlds and to Byzantium; and the western voyages of discovery and settlement to Greenland, Iceland, and America.
