VIKINGS AND THEIR ENEMIES Warfare in Northen Europe 750-1100

Warfare in Northen Europe 750-1100 
An innovative new interpretation of the Vikings - the warrior race who roamed the early Medieval world from their Scandianvian base, reaching Russia, America and Byzantium. Using a wide array of sources and new archaeological evidence, Philip Line makes us look at the Viking world and their ways with new eyes.
The Vikings had an extraordinary historical impact. From the eighth to the eleventh centuries, they ranged across Europe – raiding, exploring, colonizing – and their presence was felt as far away as Russia, America and Byzantium. They are most famous as warriors, yet perhaps their talent for warfare is too little understood. Philip Line, in this scholarly and highly readable survey of the Viking age, uses documentary sources – the chronicles, sagas and poetry – and the latest archaeological evidence to describe how the Vikings and their enemies in northern Europe organized for war. His graphic survey includes Scandinavia, the British Isles, the Carolingian Empire and its successor kingdoms, and the eastern Baltic. He gives an up-to-date interpretation of the Viking approach to violence and their fighting methods that makes fascinating reading for anyone keen to understand how the legendary warrior race operated and achieved so much in early medieval Europe.
