The Northern Conquest: Vikings in Britain and Ireland

Front Cover
Signal Books, 2007 - Civilization, Viking - 272 pages
0 Reviews
Most historical accounts examine the Viking Age in one part rather than the whole region of the British Isles and Ireland. Very few pay attention to the continued contact between England and Scandinavia in the post-Norman Conquest period. This book aims to offer an alternative approach by presenting a history of the Viking Age which considers the whole area up to and beyond the Norman Conquest of 1066.
