Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Well-written, loaded with information, and with a rich assortment of illustrations, each Discoveries "RM" volume is a look at one facet of art, archaeology, music, history, philosophy, popular culture, science, or nature. These innovatively designed, affordably priced, compact paperbacks bring ideas to life and amplify our understanding of civilization in a new way.

Synopsis:

In the 8th century Europe rang out with this prayer: 'Save us, oh Lord, from the fury of the Northmen. They ravage our lands. They kill our women and children.' Here is the story of the fabled Vikings, who discovered Greenland and sailed in their longboats as far as North America; who colonized Iceland, pillaged Ireland, and put France to the sword; and who voyaged to the gates of Constantinople and even seized the throne of the czars.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 170) and index.
