Historical Atlas of the Vikings, the Penguin Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Viking marauders in their longships burst through the defenses of 9th-century Europe, striking terror into the hearts of monks, peasants, and rulers. But the Vikings were more than seaborne terrorists. This atlas shows their development as traders and craftsmen, explorers, settlers, and mercenaries, and follows the routes of Viking merchants from Constantinople to the new world. Full color.

Synopsis:

This atlas examines the history of the Vikings. By showing their development as traders and craftsmen, explorers, settlers and mercenaries, it sets out to show that they were more than just marine terrorists.

Synopsis:

Viking marauders struck fear into the hearts of ninth-century European peasants, monks and nobles alike for two centuries, but the Vikings were more than seaborne terrorists. This atlas illustrates their influence extending from the Holy Land to Newfoundland, as explorers, settlers, craftsmen and hired mercenaries.
