Good Book

A primer on the Vikings, the book provides a good overview. It describes major turning points without going into detail. It seems to have been written for a seventh-grade history class.

very good


The book was ok but skips over the Vikings were raiding England and Europe. The background information was interesting but moved into the Christian period with little discussion of trade and society.

A good first look

A good first look at the age of the Vikings, and the likely causes of the Viking scourges that started in 793 AD and continued through the next century and more.

Don't waste your time

No need in reading this. Most of what's written is speculation and myth, not history. The performance is terrible.
