"Much more than simply a lavish catalog to accompany the exhibition of the same name organized by the National Museum of Denmark, the British Museum, and the Museum f r Vor- und Fr hgeschichte, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin... this attractive, well-produced volume addresses a comprehensive array of subjects relevant to understanding the material and thought worlds of the Viking Age in northern Europe (roughly AD 750-1150)."--Stephen Mitchell, Speculum (October 2015) "The color photos provide a wonderfully close look at Viking artifacts but also move this exhibit catalog beyond the museum, with lush depictions of countrysides, archival photos of archaeological digs, and art from the era. Enthusiasts and amateurs alike will engage with this modern and cross-cultural take on the Viking age."--Booklist "A rich and engaging work that offers insights about the worlds of the Viking Age, for both scholars and general readers, Vikings is a joy and a surprise to read. . . . Williams, Pentz and Wemhoff (as well as their museum staffs and other authors in text) are to be congratulated for putting together such a gorgeous and substantive work about the age of the Vikings. I am already imagining ways to use it in my World and Western history survey courses."--Thomas J. Rushford, Itinerario "This volume was written to accompany an exhibition organized by the national museums of Britain, Denmark, and Germany. . . . Contributor Neil Price does an excellent job interpreting belief and ritual for a subject always difficultto treat objectively. The writing is high quality as are the copious illustrations and publication standards. Filled with the latest scholarship, this book would be a valuable acquisition for college and university libraries."--Choice "A beautiful, accessible book, with strong interpretive narration that will be enjoyed by Viking enthusiasts, medievalists, artists interested in material culture, and newcomers to the subject."--Library Journal (starred review) "The book and the exhibition are visually stunning. . . . and the section on 'Belief and Ritual' is fascinating."--Tom Shippey, London Review of Books
