Editorial Reviews


"A welcome contribution to medieval studies in general... A joint effort by virtually all the foremost experts in the field... Will be basic to work in Scandinavian studies and no research library should be without it."-"Choice "The scholarly world is at last blessed with an up-to-date, trustworthy, basic research tool in English... A well-balanced, tasteful, and generous smorgasbord, with something to appeal to everyone... This volume sets a new standard and will enrich Old Norse studies for years to come."-"Speculum

Format: Library Binding
You don't know what you've missed out on, till you get your hands on this encyclopedic collection of articles about Medieval Scandinavia. I've owned my copy for soon 10 years and I've had use of it several times.
It contains valuable information for those of us with a special interest in the old Norse culture.
