Synopsis

Vikings, those ancient Norse seafarers, have inspired plenty of pop culture phenomena, from the A&E hit show Vikings to Thor Ragnarok to the ever-expanding world of Viking larp. Known for being skilled craftspeople, accomplished merchants, hardworking farmers, and masters of the sea, the Vikings were a complex and captivating people.The Viking Hondb?k is an engaging, compelling guide -- with a sense of humor -- exploring who the Vikings were and how they lived, from ancient Norse daily life to battles and adventuring. Readers will learn how Vikings ate, dressed, and fought, and even how they weaved the perfect beard braid and built warships and weapons. Interspersed throughout the book are revealing historical anecdotes about Viking conquests, daily life, and relationships, with sections covering personal style, family structure and household, tools and metalwork, sailing and raiding, fishing and hunting, family and neighbors, swordmaking and boatbuilding, famous warriors, myths and afterlife, and more. A two-color design and fifty black-and-white line drawings will bring the style and details of the Vikings world to life.
