The Vikings

Gwyn Jones
Introduced by Magnus Magnusson

Gwyn Jones dispels the myths of an empire built on terror and tyranny, in The Vikings; now in its seventh Folio Society printing.

Far from being merciless barbarians who tore through the continent in a reign of unrelenting terror, the Vikings were an ambitious but largely peace-loving race who brought massive social and cultural change to northern Europe. Three hundred years in the making, the Viking Age still enthrals over 1,000 years later; so much so that our edition is now in its seventh printing and remains the definitive title on the subject.
