The Vikings were one of the most adventurous and vibrant of peoples. To find out in as detailed way as possible where they visited, traded, raided, and settled has increasingly required a multidisciplinary approach, stretching across a wide spectrum of expertise from the arts and sciences. This book comprises a collection of papers from experts from a broad range of disciplines and shows how a wide variety of approaches based on historical, archaeological, place-name, linguistic, physical, and genetic tools can collectively provide a detailed understanding of the Vikings in peace and in war.
