The Penguin Historical Atlas of the Vikings
Penguin Books, 1995 - 144 oldal
Viking marauders in their longships burst through the defences of ninth-century Europe, striking terror into the hearts of peasants and rulers alike for two centuries. But the Vikings were more than just marine warriors and this atlas shows their development as traders and craftsmen, explorers, settlers and mercenaries. With over sixty full colour maps, it follows the tracks of the Viking merchants who travelled deep into Russia, of Viking mercenaries who served in the emperor’s bodyguard at Constantinople, and Viking mariners who sailed beyond the edge of the known world to North America.

Don't let the 'picture book' appearance of this little book keep you from buying it, even if you're a serious scholar. The maps are indispensable, and the chronology is laid out logically. One could design an entire semester syllabus based on the chronology in this little book. Teljes értékelés elolvasása
