    As raiders and explorers, the Vikings played a decisive role in the formation of Latin Christendom, and particularly of western Europe. Now, in a series of 36 vivid lectures by an honored teacher and classical scholar, you have the opportunity to understand this remarkable race as never before, studying the Vikings not only as warriors, but in all of the other roles in which they were equally extraordinary - merchants, artists, kings, raiders, seafarers, shipbuilders, and creators of a remarkable literature of myths and sagas.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The overall narrative was very in depth and divided up by region. This made it easy for someone who has some Viking knowledge like me to focus on things I didn't know.


    Any additional comments?

    I got this audiobook because I was getting eye surgery and needed something to occupy me for about a week while I couldn't see. It was a good decision. I've always liked Viking history and mythology and I enjoyed the lectures provided. The lecturer obviously knows alot about the time period and uses Norse words effectively. He also knows random anecdotes about most of the figures which makes it very interesting. The one thing I didn't like was that Prof Harl sounds like he needs a drink of water about half way through each lecture and it only gets worse by the end. The classical music and fake applause don't bother me as much as other reviewers.
