9781519506412: Halfdan of Jorvik (2000 Years of York) (Volume 4)

When the sons of Ragnar Lodbrok heard that King Aella of Northumbria had killed their father by throwing him into a snake pit, they vowed revenge. They raised what became known as the Great Heathen Army and set out to conquer England. One of those sons was Halfdan "White Shirt" Ragnarsson, and it is he who founded the kingdom of Jorvik, which became today's county of Yorkshire. This is his story. The story is told in a modern version of Háttlausa, which is one of the verse forms used by the Old Norse poets. It is Part 4 of a bigger project entitled 2000 years of York.
