Life and Legend

For a civilization that ended nearly one thousand years ago, there seems to be a great deal new to know about the Vikings since we last checked. That the Viking world extended to four continents, for example, and some of their ships were 120 feet long, and Viking marauders did not rape and pillage every town and convent they stumbled across, nor did they wear horned helmets.

Developed in conjunction with national museums in London, Denmark, and Berlin, through flawless photography and contextual narrative, this book brings to light an astounding hoard of Viking loot collected from hundreds of archaeological sites, from Greenland to the Ukraine.
