The Isle of Man provides a microcosm of Viking settlement in the West. Set in the northern part of the Irish Sea, it was a major player in the economic and political life of this Norse region from the beginning of the tenth century until the end of the Scandinavian overlordship of the Hebrides and the Man in the middle of the thirteenth century. This book presents, for the first time, for both specialist and general reader, a major survey of the Island in the period from the early tenth century to the middle of the eleventh century.

Here is the complete story of the vikings from their origins in Scandinavia during the early first millenium AD, through the incredible period of raiding, trading, and settling known as the Viking Age and the huge impact that the vikings had on the course of European history, to the last surviving viking settlements in 15th century Greenland. The book explores viking life and culture in detail, from their costumes and appearance to their longhouses and towns, including warfare, targets, and tactics are analyzed, as are their weapons, crafts, and other artifacts-including their stunning pattern-welded swords, their helmets, and their hoards. The ship, the linchpin of the viking world, is described and illustrated with numerous examples, among them Oseberg and Nydam.
