Viking Voyages and the Old Norse Sagas

Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough

  • A fascinating voyage to the furthest edgelands of the Viking world via the drama of the Old Norse sagas - from the bleak landscapes of the Arctic Circle to medieval Constantinople, pre-Columbus north America to Kievan Rus
  • Places the rich confusion and fantasy of the sagas in the illuminating context of an array of other evidence, from rune-stones and ruins to texts from Byzantium and Baghdad
  • Includes vivid descriptions of the actual landscapes discovered, explored and inhabited by the Norsemen
  • Enables readers to understand the Norsemen like never before, as if they were travelling with them on their adventures to far-flung corners of the world
