When one thinks about the Vikings, usually images of savage fighters arriving in longships to raid villages come to mind. But the Vikings weren't just violent invaders trying to steal treasure. These Norse warriors were also master sailors and explorers looking for new lands to farm and colonise. Dynamic illustrations and entertaining tales of famous Viking warriors teach readers about the lives and goals of these fierce Scandinavian raiders.
The Vikings maintain their grip on our imagination, but their image is too often distorted by myth. It is true that they pillaged, looted, and enslaved. But they also settled peacefully and traveled far from their homelands in swift and sturdy ships to explore. The Age of the Vikings tells the full story of this exciting period in history. Drawing on a wealth of written, visual, and archaeological evidence, Anders Winroth captures the innovation and pure daring of the Vikings without glossing over their destructive heritage. He not only explains the Viking attacks, but also looks at Viking endeavors in commerce, politics, discovery, and colonization, and reveals how Viking arts, literature, and religious thought evolved in ways unequaled in the rest of Europe. The Age of the Vikings sheds new light on the complex society, culture, and legacy of these legendary seafarers.
This is an unusual book for young readers. However, she will be interested in adults who are fond of the history of the Vikings. The first part is 12 newly discovered adventure stories about the Vikings such as Ivar the Viking by Paul B. Du Chaillu, Eric Brighteyes by H. Rider Haggard, The Story of Rolf and the Viking's Bow by Allen French, Olaf the Glorious: A Story of the Viking Age by Robert Leighton, Wulfric the Weapon Thane by Charles W. Whistler, Viking Boys by Jessie Margaret Edmondston Saxby, King Alfred's Viking by Charles W. Whistler and others.
Through translations of their surviving writings, the Vikings speak directly to the modern reader in this book, revealing much of their everyday feelings and concerns. The Vikings are shown as they saw themselves, portrayed in their own writings or in the reports of people who knew them closely. This book comprises of a series of translations from primary sources: runic inscriptions left behind by the Vikings, poems of their official skalds (literary works that entertained them), the few prose historical accounts that derive direct from the Vikings, and eyewitness reports of how the northern peoples lived.
Gobineau's 1874 novel Les Pléiades is concerned with a few exceptionally talented people who are examples of "ethnic persistence" in Europe surrounded by vast masses of morons. In his introduction to Les Pléiades, Gobineau says the purpose of the novel is to advance the theory "that there are no longer classes, that there are no longer peoples, but only -- in the whole of Europe -- certain individuals who float like the wreckage upon the flood".
Vikings plagued the coasts of Ireland and Britain in the 790s AD. Over time, their raids became more intense and by the mid 9th century, Vikings had established a number of settlements in Ireland and Britain and had become heavily involved with local politics. A particularly successful Viking leader named Ã varr campaigned on both sides of the Irish Sea in the 860s. His descendants dominated the major seaports of Ireland and challenged the power of kings in Britain during the late 9th and 10th centuries. In 1014, the battle of Clontarf marked a famous stage in the decline of Viking power in Ireland while the conquest of England in 1013 by the Danish king Sveinn Forkbeard marked a watershed in the history of Vikings in Britain. The descendants of Ã varr continued to play a significant role in the history of Dublin and the Hebrides until the 12th century, but they did not threaten to overwhelm the major kingships of Britain or Ireland in this later period as they had done before. This book provides a political analysis of the deeds of Ã varr's family, from their first appearance in Insular records down to the year 1014. Such an account is necessary in light of the flurry of new work that has been done in other areas of Viking Studies. Recent theoretical approaches to the subject have raised many interesting questions regarding identity, material culture, and structures of authority. Archaeological finds and excavations have also offered potentially radical insights into Viking settlement and society. In line with these developments, Clare Downham provides a reconsideration of events based on contemporary written accounts.
