Children of Ash and Elm: A History of the Vikings
By Neil Price
Why this book?
Neil Price holds the Chair of Archaeology at Uppsala University in Sweden. He is currently running a major 10-year project, The Viking Phenomenon, which explores the nature and causes of the Viking Age, with a focus on themes that have featured in Price’s earlier research, including Viking belief systems, the role of slavery, and how far Viking armies were pirate communities. In this major new work, he draws upon the latest archaeological evidence to provide a tremendous overview and new insights into how the Vikings may have seen themselves, descendents of the first human couple, the children of Ash and Elm.
