Chronicles of the Vikings. Records, Memorials and Myths. 

Page, R.I. 

Paperback. 240 pp. The British Museum Press 1995, Reissued 2014. 

First published in 1995, this collection of newly translated primary sources shows how the Vikings saw themselves and how they were seen by their neighbours. Bede and other contemporary commentators present the Vikings as merciless barbarians and material remains do not provide much evidence for Viking values and worries.

Professor Page introduces and comments on the poems, prose and proverbs from the period 800-1100 AD. Together they present a compelling and human picture of Viking social life; how they coped with famine, travel and the supernatural, the problems they encountered in discovering, populating and cultivating new lands. A fascinating book for general reader and scholar alike.
