In the summer of 793 AD Viking raiders attacked and looted the
monastic island of Lindisfarne, off the coast of Northumberland. This
assault was only the beginning, within 18 months huge areas of the
British coast was being devastated by the terrifying ships and their
fierce, destructive fighting men. Who were these mysterious raiders?
In this book, veteran historian Angus Konstam answers that question,
and many more besides. By focussing on the Viking warrior, himself,
these mysterious figures are fleshed out and brought vividly to life. The
book explores the Norse background and culture, the way the people
lived and dressed, the weapons they carried and how they used them. It
looks at their system of belief and their allegiances to family,
community and king, but it also explains just why they were so
effective as plunderers and raiders. The result is a book that uncovers
the world of the Viking in a way which has never been done before,
presented in the highly accessible yet informative style that
characterises the Haynes manual series.
