From raiders to traders, the Vikings made their presence felt in Ireland. Initially striking the country as attackers, arriving up the rivers on their longboats, they founded towns and began to trade internationally. In this account of the Viking and Irish lifestyles of the period, and how they began to influence one another, the author explores the art, crafts and customs that were borrowed from the Vikings and became part of the Celtic/Irish style. Morgan Llywelyn is renowned as an award-winning author for her historical novels and books.
