About 800 CE, mysterious longships made their first appearance along the North Sea coast of Britain. From north to south, these raiding ships appeared out of the sea mists, carrying warriors so fierce that no one could stand against them. This was the beginning of a period of history known to us as the Viking Age, when Scandinavian peoples influenced much of northern Europe and beyond.

The Historical Atlas of the Viking World chronicles Viking achievements, drawing on archaeological evidence as well as the rich source of Norse sagas and mythology. With a wealth of full-color illustrations, many of which have never been published before, and evidence from the latest archaeological discoveries and historical research, this is the most current and comprehensive study of the Vikings and the territories they explored.
