15. VIKING BRITAIN: AN EXPLORATION

To many, the word ‘Viking’ brings to mind scenes of violence and pillage, of marauders from beyond the sea rampaging around the British coastline in the last gloomy centuries before the Norman Conquest. Thomas Williams, however, will offer a vital evocation of a forgotten world, its echoes in later history and its implications for the present, revealing how much Britain today owes to its Viking past.
