‘Editors Brink and Price are to be commended for coordinating this impressive volume. The book is large and learned, intended as a reference work for scholars and serious students of Scandinavia in the Viking Age. Lay readers with a keen interest in the Vikings will also wish to have this reference work, not only for the wealth of information, but also because the articles are well written by noted scholars. The articles are often wide-ranging, and the breadth given to the various topics covered is impressive … Indispensable for scholars of the Middle Ages who wish to expand their course offerings by teaching courses on the Viking age, or for scholars and students who wish to do research in this field.’ – CHOICE
'The publishers, editors and individual authors are to be commended for producing a volume that is generally thorough, readable and valuable, and that will undoubtedly have a long life both as a standard work of reference and as a beacon guiding further research into the Viking phenomenon.' – Saga-Book
