Chronicles of the Vikings - Records, Memorials and Myths

178,00 DKK

Through translations of their surviving writings, the Vikings speak directly to the modern reader in this book, revealing much of their everyday feelings and concerns. The Vikings are shown as they saw themselves, portrayed in their own writings or in the reports of people who knew them closely. 

This book comprises of a series of translations from primary sources: runic inscriptions left behind by the Vikings, poems of their official skalds (literary works that entertained them), the few prose historical accounts that derive direct from the Vikings, and eyewitness reports of how the northern peoples lived. 

It defines the social values of the Viking Age and looks at the problems they encountered in discovering, populating and cultivating new lands, the difficulties of keeping law and order and the solutions they tried. This book also shows how the Vikings coped with famine and other natural disasters, travel and its perils, something of their popular culture, riddles, and proverbs.
