1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Dag Stomberg on November 10, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Genetics study along with archaeology makes the history of the
Vikings immensely interesting. DNA surveys may tell a lot, but
really it does not matter whether some of us have the genes.

The Viking history remains an enigmatic thriller and consequentially
rates high for appreciation.

Julian Richards has given a criterion not seen in other sources.

Strongly recommended!
