Beyond the Northlands  Viking Voyages and the Old Norse Sagas  Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough

A fascinating voyage to the furthest edgelands of the Viking world via the drama of the Old Norse sagas - from the bleak landscapes of the Arctic Circle to medieval Constantinople, pre-Columbus north America to Kievan Rus
Places the rich confusion and fantasy of the sagas in the illuminating context of an array of other evidence, from rune-stones and ruins to texts from Byzantium and Baghdad
Includes vivid descriptions of the actual landscapes discovered, explored and inhabited by the Norsemen
Enables readers to understand the Norsemen like never before, as if they were travelling with them on their adventures to far-flung corners of the world

"a delight ... a book that provides us with a highly entertaining and informative sense of the real Norse world-view." - Philip Parker, Literary Review
