Histories of the Unexpected: The Vikings

Available options


Histories of the Unexpected not only presents a new way of thinking about the past, but also reveals the world around us as never before. Traditionally, the Vikings have been understood in a straightforward way - but the period really comes alive if you take an unexpected approach to its history. Yes, ships, raiding and trade have a fascinating history...

but so too do hair, break-ins, toys, teeth, mischief, luck and silk!Each of these subjects is equally fascinating in its own right, and each sheds new light on the traditional subjects and themes that we think we know so well.


Dr Sam Willis, Professor Daybell
