Summary Find out all about the history of the Vikings, the warriors and explorers who raided Europe in their longships throughout the Middle Ages. Learn about Viking warfare, their families, homes, clothes, and crafts, as well as gods from Norse mythology, such as Thor and Loki, in this beautifully illustrated children's book that is crammed with amazing facts. Amazing cut-away artworks take you inside Viking homes and longships, in which these notorious seafaring warriors sailed to North America 500 years before Christopher Columbus.
