Review:

This volume refocuses our attention on the importance of the maritime and littoral regions of northern medieval Europe, and more specifically the Mare Balticum.' (Shannon Lewis-Simpson Antiquity, Vol. 84, No. 325, 2010)

Wulfstans Voyage is a welcome addition to the literature on the lands round the Baltic Sea in the early Middle Ages and it also presents a fresh study of an important, brief geographical text. With a wealth of information in the text, the volume also is lavishly illustrated with photographs, maps, and charts.' (Benjamin Hudson, Pennsylvania State University International Journal of Maritime History)

[...]a valuable overview of our present knowledge of seafaring and life in the coastal areas around the southern Baltic Sea in the ninth and tenth centuries.' (Roeland Paardekooper; Eindhoven, The Netherlands The Northern Mariner/le marin du nord)
