) Christianity; the central role that women played in politics and war; and how the enormous wealth brought back to Scandinavia affected the social fabric—shedding new light on Viking society.
Jon Viðar Sigurðsson is Professor in the Department of Archaeology, Conservation, and History at the University of Oslo. He is author of many books, including Viking Friendship.
"In this impressively well-written book, Jon Viðar Sigurðsson synthesizes a large body of scholarship to present a fascinating social history of Scandinavia during the Viking Age. Brilliantly addressing such subjects as networks, conflicts and their resolution, the role of honor, class and gender divisions, and the role of women, this book is a significant contribution."
Haki Antonsson, author of Damnation and Salvation in Old Norse Literature:
"This book is a concise and lucid introduction to the politics and culture of Scandinavia in the Viking Age. Jon Viðar Sigurðsson chooses illuminating examples, which he deftly draws from a broad spectrum of source, to highlight the principal themes of the place and period."
