Details

Looking beyond the warlike Viking stereotypes, this study demonstrates how distinct identities developed in the North Atlantic islands that were settled by the Norse as they migrated from their Scandinavian homelands between 800 and 1250. Knight uses evidence from archaeological sites and texts including sagas and law codes to examine the settlement, economy and lifestyle of three zones, following the settlers’ progress from Shetland and the Faroe Islands, via Iceland, to Greenland.
