Ever wonder about Vikings? I mean the real Vikings. Want to learn how they lived and fought and contributed so much to history. Learn how Vikings actually arrived in America long before Christopher Columbus. Read about all of this and so much more in “The Vikings”, a book from Osprey Publishing . This amazing hardback volume is filled with beautiful photographs and realistic drawings of all things Viking. So well written, I started reading and had trouble putting the book down.
The history of the Vikings is bloody and eventful, and Viking warriors capture the popular imagination to this day. They made history, establishing the dukedom of Normandy, providing the Byzantine Emperors’ bodyguard and landing on the shores of America 500 years before Columbus. Beautifully illustrated with colour photographs and original Osprey artwork, this book presents a new window into their way of life including detailed studies of the Hersir, the raiding warrior of the Viking world, and the legendary Viking longship.
