The Historical Dictionary of the Vikings traces Viking activity in Europe, North America, and Asia for over three centuries. During this period people from Scandinavia used their longships to launch lightning raids upon their European neighbors, to colonize new lands in the east and west, and to exchange Scandinavian furs for eastern wine and spices and Arab silver. The Viking age also saw significant changes at home in Scandinavia - kings extended their power, Norse paganism lost ground to christianity, and new towns and ports thrived as a result of increased contact with the wider world.

This book provides a comprehensive work of reference for people interested in the Vikings, including entries on the main historical figures involved in this dramatic period, important battles and treaties, significant archaeological finds, and key works and sources of information on the period. It also summarizes the impact the Vikings had on the areas where they traveled and settled. There is a chronological table, detailed and annotated bibliographies for different themes and geographical locations, and an introduction discussing the major events and developments of the Viking age.

About the Author:

Katherine Holman is currently pursuing her own research as a freelance historian. Recently, she was lecturer in Scandinavian Studies and Assistant Director of European Studies in the department of modern languages at the University of Hull in England.

Review:

Includes the main historical characters involved during this period, important battles and treaties, archaeological finds and sources of information on the Viking period. It summarizes the influence of Vikings as well as where they traveled and settled. The dictionary not only presents the greater picture, but also examines the everyday aspects of how people lived and worked. (Viking Heritage Magazine)

Holman makes an excellent addition to the small but growing pool of English-language reference works on the Vikings...Highly recommended. General and academic readers. (CHOICE)

Anyone studying or encountering the history, archaeology or literature associated with the Viking era at undergraduate level or below would find the dictionary a very useful companion. ("American Reference Books Annual")

Given the great interest in the Vikings and their times, this well-organized volume fills a gap in the literature and should prove to be a valuable reference tool in high school, public, and academic libraries. (American Reference Books Annual)
