The A to Z of the Vikings traces Viking activity in Europe, North America, and Asia for over three centuries. During this period people from Scandinavia used their longships to launch lightning raids upon their European neighbors, to colonize new lands in the east and west, and to exchange Scandinavian furs for eastern wine and spices and Arab silver. The Viking age also saw significant changes at home in Scandinavia kings extended their power, Norse paganism lost ground to Christianity, and new towns and ports thrived as a result of increased contact with the wider world. This book provides a comprehensive work of reference for people interested in the Vikings, including entries on the main historical figures involved in this dramatic period, important battles and treaties, significant archaeological finds, and key works and sources of information on the period. It also summarizes the impact the Vikings had on the areas where they traveled and settled. There is a chronological table, detailed and annotated bibliographies for different themes and geographical locations, and an introduction discussing the major events and developments of the Viking age."

Mittelalterliche nordische Rechtsquellen finden sich in dem weiten Bereich von Grönland, Island, den skandinavischen Ländern bis nach Finnland und Russland. Ihr Inhalt und ihre Entwicklung werden hier erstmals zusammenfassend dargestellt. Die Aufnahme des Christentums hat diese Rechtsquellen, das Gemeinwesen, das Privatrecht und das tägliche Leben entscheidend verändert: Die Könige verstanden sich jetzt als christliche Streiter und beanspruchten ein eigenes Recht zur Gesetzgebung. Im Strafrecht löste die Täterschuld das Erfolgsprinzip ab, und der Spruch der Geschworenen ersetzte die Eisenprobe (iudicium ferri igniti). Die christliche Ehelehre wurde herrschend, die Kirche suchte das sippengebundene Erbrecht zu ihrem Vorteil zu ändern, indem sie Seelgaben und Testamente einführte, und in Schweden verdrängte die Sonnenteilung die gewachsene Form der Dörfer. Der Band zeichnet die Rechtsentwicklung im Norden von der Wikingerzeit an, gibt jeweils eine kurze Übersicht über die Landschaften, erläutert die Überlieferung ihrer Rechtsquellen und folgt ihren Inhalten anhand der politischen Entwicklung bis etwa 1500, als Humanismus und Reformation das überkommene Recht zu verändern begannen. 28 Landkarten dienen der Veranschaulichung des Gesagten.

The Sagas of Icelanders are enduring stories from Viking-Age Iceland filled with love and romance, battles and feuds, tragedy and comedy. Yet these tales are little read today, even by lovers of literature. The culture and history of the people depicted in the Sagas are often unfamiliar to the modern reader, though the audience for whom the tales were intended would have had an intimate understanding of the material. This text introduces the modern reader to the daily lives and material culture of the Vikings. Topics covered include Icelandic religion, social customs, the settlement of disputes, and major milestones in life of Viking-Age Icelanders. Issues of dispute among scholars, such as the nature of settlement and the division of land, are addressed in the text.

Thoroughly updated and with a new foreword 'The Viking Age is shot through with the spirit of adventure. For 300 years, from just before AD800 until well into the eleventh century, the Vikings affected almost every region accessible to their ships, and left traces that are still part of life today' Far from being just 'wild, barbaric, axe-wielding pirates', the Vikings created complex social institutions, oversaw the coming of Christianity to Scandinavia and made a major impact on European history through trade, travel and far-flung consolidation. This encyclopedic study brings together the latest research on Viking art, burial customs, class divisions, jewellery, kingship, poetry and family life. The result is a rich and compelling picture of an extraordinary civilisation.
