Viking Legacy is the result of more than 25 years of research by one of Norway's preeminent scholars on the Norse Sagas and Viking Age period The book is a crucial tool for those wanting to penetrate to the heart of the Viking Civilization to better understand its role in shaping history. More than marauders and bloodthirsty conquerors, the Vikings were builders of a civilization which influence may still be seen in the modern world.
