Editorial Reviews

Review

The second edition of The Viking Age: A Reader comprises a splendid collection of primary documents relating to the Viking period. What was already an extraordinarily broad reader has in its second edition become even more useful through the inclusion of additional texts illuminating Viking life, notably those depicting childhood and entertainment. One is hard put to think of any text suitable for study of the Vikings that is not found here. (Marianne E. Kalinke, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

The Viking Age is useful; the pieces are well selected and well translated. The next time I teach a Viking class, this is a text that will be assigned. (Benjamin Hudson, Pennsylvania State University)
