Overview

The second edition of this lively and comprehensive book provides a forceful reassessment of the role of the Vikings in history. Drawing on archaeological, literary, as well as historical evidence, the author describes the Viking expeditions overseas, and their transformation from terrifying raiders to assimilated settlers whose rich culture played an influential role in European civilization.

     I am a high school student and I had to read this book for a research project. I liked this book because it covers all areas that I was mainly looking for and it also changed and gave me a better perspective about the Vikings. Although, I do not like reading books about history I actually found this book to be very interesting, especially the Viking lifestyle. I had never read a book about Vikings before, and I thought it was a great first book about Vikings to begin with. However, I found many sections of the book very boring because I did have a hard time trying to understand many vocabulary words. What I found very interesting were the illustrations because it gave me a better understanding of where they were located or where they would travel too. Also, after a while I found it very boring reading just historical facts that went on and on and I would get lost and had to go back and reread them. The last section of this book was the one I found most boring because I did get lost many tmes and it would confuse me. For most of the time I spent reading this book I enjoyed most of it because I did find myself really interested in most of the sections. I would recommend this book for a research project because it covers most of the parts that are needed. However, I would also recommend this book to people who just want to learn about the Vikings because it does give a different perspective of the way they lived and who they were. Although, it is not a book that can be easily comprehended.
