Die Berserker
The Berserkers: Animal-Warriors of the North from the Vendel to the Viking Era

Die Tierkrieger des Nordens von der Vendel- bis zur Wikingerzeit

Translated by: Anne Hofmann

Norse researchers have been studying the berserkir for centuries without coming to a consensus about this phenomenon. Samson uses a comparative examination of literary and archeological sources to present the historical context surrounding the animal-warriors and the popular beliefs associated with them. The study shows the evolution of the image of the berserker.
