The Vikings ↠ S great people presents a rounded and fascinating picture of a nation who in modern eyes would seem to embody striking contradictions They were undoubtedly pillagers raiders and terrifying. I read this book over the summer for fun and I probably wouldn’t have posted a review here were it not for the contradictions I found recently between this book and the newer politically correct ideas about global warming First though I’ll praise the book for what it is a thorough introduction to historical Viking studies The author of this book is part storyteller part travel agent and part archaeologist This book is both a retelling of historical battles and legendary tales and the disclosure of the latest as of 1980 archaeological findings with descriptive narratives of modern day locations and peoples in northern Europe What caught my attention and what begs for further research is the several places where the climate of the Viking age is described It clearly contradicts the modern theory of Global Warming and the idea that the sea level has remained steady for eons For instance the Greenland saga explains that the Vikings were able to settle there because it was much warmer than it is today; and explains that they abandoned their Greenland homes as the climate grew cooler only a few hundred years ago In several places in this book the author states as matter of fact that the sea in Viking times only a thousand years ago was significantly higher than it is today One such example is a promontory of historical significance in Norway where a battle fought off the coast of what was then an island marked the beginning of that nation In the telling of the battle of Stamford Bridge 1066 AD the author points out that the Vikings left their armor in their ships due to the late September heat The impression I gained from this book is that the world was much warmer in Viking timesand that knowing my history of other civilizations at this time humanity thrivedI guess the uestion to ask is whether to discard this book because it does not agree with modern theory or to uestion modern theory because it ignores the data presented in this book CHARACTERS Ë eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Magnus Magnusson
