The Viking reputation is of bloodthirsty seafaring warriors, repeatedly plundering the British Isles and the North Atlantic throughout the early Middle Ages. We also look at the Viking identity, through their artistic expression, rune stones, their ships, and their religion. Yet Vikings were also traders, settlers, and farmers, with a complex artistic and linguistic culture, whose expansion overseas led them to cross the Atlantic for the first time in European history. The Viking story is also brought up to date, by examining their legacy from the medieval Icelandic sagas to 19th Century nationalism, Wagner, and the Nazis. Highlighting the latest archaeological evidence, Julian Richards reveals the whole Viking world: their history, society and culture, and their expansion overseas for trade, colonization, and plunder.

Delicate metalwork is contrasted with elaborate wood carvings and the famous Gotland picture stones, and we move up in scale from the Oseberg ship to decorated weapons and fine jewels. The book' s conclusion looks at the art in relation to Viking mythology and sagas as well as its legacy in later times. Thematic chapters then describe and discuss the six main Viking art styles, showing how they emerged from and interacted with one another. An opening chapter gives the historical and geographic background. This new survey covers all the intricate and beautiful art styles of the so-called Viking Age. It ranges in time from the first major Viking expeditions overseas around AD 800 to the establishment of Christianity in Scandinavia some three hundred years later.
