Overview

Amazing interactive features and a wealth of information transport you to the days when the Vikings ruled the seas!
The first adventure in the exciting new Lost Worlds series!
For more than two hundred years, during the Vikings’ heyday, all Europe shivered in fear at their terrifying approach. This lavishly illustrated and interactive book explains why. It illuminates every aspect of Viking history and culture, from their legends and lore to their journeys of exploration and their discovery of America five hundred years before Columbus. Most exciting of all, the volume contains dozens of special features to heighten the experience, with sound chips (including someone speaking in Anglo-Saxon against a background of thunderstorms), gatefolds featuring a Viking map, a cut-through illustration of a longship, a depiction of the Bayeux tapestry showing the Normans attacking England, five embossed Runestone concertina “booklets” that actually allow you to feel the inscriptions on the page, and accounts of Viking legends re-imagined by some of Europe’s premier fantasy artists. As readers enjoy poring through the book, they’ll find out exactly who the Vikings were, why they left their homeland, how they waged war, and what weapons they used. The attractive design incorporates authentic Norse design motifs throughout.

    Nicely put together

    This is a very nice book, if you are someone who loves the Vikings and are interested about learning about them, this is something you will want to have. The book is mature enough to appeal to adults, yet is also good for kids as young as their early teens. The book covers, the Viking's life and culture before they left Scandinavia, and what their lives were like, and why they took to the seas. The book covers their history with relatively good detail from the raid at Lindisfarne, through the continuing raids of the British Isles, France, Islamic Spain and beyond. You will learn about Leif Ericson, Erik the Red, St. Olaf and many other famous Scandinavians along with the history and the events involving their colinization of Iceland, Greenland, and Vinland, along with giving information about their pagan gods and their conversion to Christianity. Of course, it also discusses their armor, weapons, and their famed long ships. Finally, the book goes into to a bit of detail about their assimilation into modern European Society and the end of the Viking age. Overall good book, a few powerful images here and there, along with some interesting information making this a very informing read.

    Fabulous book

    I bought this book for my teenage son but we both ended up loving it. It has some incredible features including one where you press a thumbprint on the page to hear authentic Anglo- Saxon describing the attack of the Vikings on England in 793! Plus there are runestones tht you can feel and all kinds of great stuff. Highly recommended
