The Viking Age—from 750 to 1050—saw an unprecedented expansion of the Scandinavian peoples into the wider world. But for centuries, the Vikings have been seen through the eyes of others. Based on the latest archaeological and textual evidence, Children of Ash and Elm tells the story of the Vikings on their own terms: their politics, their cosmology and religion, their material world.
Known today for a stereotype of maritime violence, the Vikings exported new ideas, technologies, beliefs, and practices to the lands they discovered and the peoples they encountered. From Eirík Bloodaxe, who fought his way to a kingdom, to Gudrid Thorbjarnardóttir, the most traveled woman in the world, this is the definitive history of the Vikings.
