"Wealth dies, kinsmen die, a man himself must likewise die. Sometimes this was a trading trip, sometimes a piratical raid. Their fame lives on. Only fame never dies."(From the Edda 'Havamal) Among the 8th and 11th centuries Vikings stormed out of their Scandinavian homelands to raid and loot along the coasts of Europe. In old Norse to 'go viking' meant to take to sea in a lengthy ship for an adventure. Explorers and traders, warriors and poets, they ranged between Byzantium in the south and ventured as far as Iceland as well as North America. Often it was both. This entertaining and informative account was written specially for Naxos Audio Books by David Angus, author of Fantastic Explorers of the World, Great Inventors as correctly as other spoken word histories.
