The Vikings in England: Settlement, Society and Culture
This is a fascinating new study which will make an important addition to the literature on the Vikings and their settlement in England. It offers a focussed and meaningful discussion of often-neglected sources. Topics covered include the development of current debates regarding the settlement, Anglo-Scandinavian political accommodation, the differences and similarities between Scandinavian rural settlement and Scandinavians in the urban environment, the conversion of Scandinavians to Christianity, burial practices and associated issues of ethnicity, gender and social status. A clear and exhaustive summary of the available archaeological, historical and linguistic evidence, this book will be a standard starting point for all researchers and students investigating the Viking settlement of Britain.
