 Exceedingly interesting, enlightening and even entertaining. Fabulous content and detail. Great images and historical examples from sagas and international history. If you have an interest in vikings and even if you think you know your stuff this is highly recommended. It covers so many aspects of the Viking world from social position, national politics, rulers and leaders, types of ships, armour and weapons, joining an army or going o a Strandhogg and even what to do with the loot you earn and those that die. A thoroughly enjoyable book for all ages
