WEIDENFELD NON-FICTION OCTOBER
Neil Oliver Vikings
Neil Oliver goes beyond their bloody reputation to search for the truth about the Vikings – from Newfoundland to Baghdad. The Vikings took no prisoners and prided themselves on their blood-thirsty skills as warriors. But their prowess in battle is only a small part of their story, which stretches around the world. As the Vikings did not write their history, we have to discover it for ourselves: an extraordinary story of a people who, from the brink of destruction built an empire that lasted nearly two hundred years. Neil Oliver is a Scottish archaeologist and historian, and the charismatic presenter of award-winning documentary series Coast and The History of Scotland. He lives in Stirling.
