Make way for the Vikings! These legendary explorers and warriors return to life in this leading title from the best-selling Eyewitness series of reference titles for children.
Known for their fearsome reputations, the Vikings made their mighty mark on history, during centuries of bloodthirsty battles and international trade. Extraordinary colour photographs and illustrations show them terrorising and trading in stunning detail, and also reveal their softer side as skilled craftspeople. Join the Vikings as you launch a raid, brandish a sword, sail a warship, and watch a burial ceremony at sea. Hear classic stories, called sagas, to learn more about the origins and beliefs of these fierce folk.
Like all Eyewitness titles, Eyewitness Viking comes crammed with information, infographics, statistics, facts, and timelines designed to educate and entertain the younger reader.
If you're feeling brave, put the giant fold-out Viking wall chart up on your bedroom or classroom wall as a handy reference tool for school projects.
