Description


Two manuscripts in one book:


  • History of the Vikings: An Enthralling Overview of the Viking Age
  • Norse Mythology: An Enthralling Overview of Norse Myths, Gods, and Goddesses


Learn how the Scandinavian people lived, who sailed as part of the Viking raids, the weapons used in battle, and their religious beliefs.


In the first part of this book, you will discover:


  • The impact of the Ice Age on Norse landforms
  • How the Stone Age and Bronze Age influenced the Vikings
  • The first known Viking raid
  • Ragnar and other famous Vikings

  • The Great Heathen Army and its famous battles
  • The Viking legal system and the daily life of the Scandinavian people
  • The magic of Norse runes and poetry
  • The Vikings' impressive ability to craft ships, allowing them to traverse the known world and farther


The stories and myths of the Norse were passed down by the Vikings in oral tradition until they were recorded in manuscripts by anonymous authors in the mid-13th century. The myths that survived tell the story of how the world was first created by the gods using the dead body of a primeval giant, the existence of the different realms surrounding the universe, and various tales and lore about the gods' adventures.
