Descriptions du produit

In the ninth and tenth centuries, the Vikings created an unrivalled cultural network that spanned four continents. Adventurers, farmers, traders, conquerors and sailors, the Vikings were both peaceful and fierce, fighting or bargaining their way through as far as Constantinople in the East, North America and Greenland in the North, the British Isles in the West as well as into the Mediterranean. Throughout their existence, the Vikings encountered a remarkable diversity of peoples and inhabited an expansive and changing world. This beautifully illustrated book explores the core period of the Viking Age from a global perspective, examining how the Vikings drew influences from Christian Europe and the Islamic World and how they created a lasting historical impact on our world today. Highlighting an extraordinary range of objects and featuring new discoveries by archaeologists and metal-detector users, the cultural connections between Europe, Byzantium and the Middle East are explored in absorbing detail.Vikings: life and legend is published to complement a major exhibition developed jointly by the British Museum, the National Museum of Denmark, Copenhagen and the Museum for Prehistory and Early History, Berlin.

You get rather sumptuous high quality pictorials 9 mars 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is a great accompaniment to the exhibition at The British Museum; there is plenty of detailed information. You also get rather sumptuous high quality pictorials showing some amazing items from the Viking age. This not just not guide book, it also stand alone tome that gives over a wealth of information in its own right. That said this book does add additional level information while you are visiting the exhibition. This is a very good title that is highly recommended.

Vikingdom on Show 16 mars 2014
Par Dag Stomberg - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book is a result of the Vikings: life and legend at the British Museum in 2014. The exhibition
encompasses by means of a study of the Vikings in a context of interactions with other peoples
and cultures around the three centuries in question.

A coherent civilisation is examined with a well thought-out and easy to ponder travelogue.

Greatly recommended!

A highly drool-worthy visual survey 7 juin 2014
Par Michael K. Smith - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This very lavishly illustrated large-format volume was published for the international public exhibition of the same name put together by the British Museum, the National Museum of Denmark, and the Berlin State Museum. It was the first such exhibition in more than three decades, which gave the organizers the opportunity to show off a great many recent finds from many parts of Europe and the Near East (the Vikings got around) and to propose various refinements in interpretation. The centerpiece was "Roskild 6," the longest Norse warship yet excavated (though not that much of it actually survived above the keel), which was mounted in such a way that it could be broken down and easily moved to the next venue.

Because it's a companion to a visual event, the natural emphasis is on material culture, though the objects on display, which includes a great many weapons and a great deal of jewelry of one kind and another, is often used to exemplify Scandinavian religion, social structure, politics, and the warrior ethos. Also, because of the intended audience for the exhibition, the book doesn't try to move beyond a broad survey of the period 850-1050, though the geographical reach is considerable. There are five broad sections (each by a different specialist), on trade and cultural contact, warfare and military expansion, political power and the aristocracy, beliefs and ritual, and the ships that were essential in making the Vikings what they were.

The photography is of very high quality, though, so even the student of the period, who is unlikely to learn much that's new, will nevertheless drool over the large-format pictures, all of them in color. And they do provide an extensive bibliography.
museum handbook 26 mai 2014

Format: Relié Achat vérifié
this is a superb handbook to the extensive British Museum exhibition. Anyone interested in the Vikings, and especially their artifacts and history, should own this book.
It also costs 40 pounds in the museum, and discounted on Amazon.
It is a great research volume, that will always be in demand for this reason.
