It's been a good few months for the Vikings. A TV series that has proven an international hit, and now a prominent exhibition at the British Museum in London. Often misunderstood and characterised as barbarians only interested in rape and pillage, there has been a revision in popular opinion gathering steam, and a recent Amber title, Vikings: A History of the Norse People, adds impetus to this reevaluation. Written in an engaging, journalistic style, the book takes the reader through the life and legacy of the Viking civilization, and is well worth a read to give context to their growing international exposure on television and other popular culture.
