River Kings

A New history of the Vikings from Scandinavia to the Silk Roads,
by Cat Jarman.
Using cutting-edge forensic techniques to spark her investigation into the history of the Vikings who came to rest in British soil, Jarman's research offers enlightening new visions of the role of women and children in Viking culture. Told as a riveting history of the Vikings, it follows an epic story of the Viking Age that traces the historical trail of an ancient piece of jewelry found in a Viking grave in England to its origins thousands of miles east in India. This is a major reassessment of the fierce, often mythlogized voyagers of the North, and the global medieval world as we know it.
