Setting sail from Northern Europe during the Dark Ages, the Vikings burst onto an unsuspecting world with extraordinary consequences. This lavish volume, with 15 removable facsimile items, sheds new light on the Viking Age.

Fifteen items of removable facsimile memorabilia include:

  • A plan of a Viking ship
  • An extract from the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle describing a Viking raid
  • Notes and photographs from archeological digs
  • Maps showing Viking exploration
