Well illustrated, closely supported and fascinatingGUARD This is the first book-the length of the study in English to investigate what women did not have at the time of the Vikings, both at home, in Scandinavia and in the Viking colonies from Greenland to Russia.Proofs of their lives are fragmentary, but Judith Jesch assembles the clues provided by archaeology, runic inscriptions, names of places and names of people, foreigners, historical documents and Old Norwegian literature and mythology.These sources shed light on the different aspects of women’s lives in the Viking era, on farms and shopping malls in Scandinavia, from abroad on Viking expeditions, and that settlers in places such as Iceland and the British Isles.Women in the Viking era explores anunfamiliar aspect of medieval history and offers a new perspective on the Vikings of society, very different from the traditional image of a violent and male-dominated world.JUDITH JESCH is the Reader of Viking Studies at the University of Nottingham
