    Professor Michael D.C. Drout of Wheaton College immerses listeners in the extraordinary legacy of Viking civilization, which developed in what is now Scandinavia during the early Middle Ages. During the course of these lectures, Professor Drout explores how these peoples conquered all of Northern Europe, traveled as far as Byzantium in the East and North America in the West, and left a literary legacy that includes numerous works studied and enjoyed to this day.

    What disappointed you about The Modern Scholar: The Norsemen - Understanding Vikings and Their Culture?

    Well. This book really has bits of useful info. But they are few and hard to find.
    - Narration. Plain terrible. "like", "kind of", "well" are plentiful. As well as stupid jokes, probably intended to get attention of low audience(students I guess?).
    - Half of the book is about author's analysis of Scandinavian literature. (this one has some interesting parts btw). But of course very opinionated and questionable.
    - Almost no history. And it means NO history. Besides quick reflections on northern ship and again quick mentions of events.

    Moreover when the author tells about mythology you literally feel his contempt to the subject.

    Overall I would save money and not buy this for more than 2 cents or so.
