This thread on the history of Norway - The Viking Age consists of 6 chapters (5 chapters on the history and one chapter with cited literature): 1. Introduction, etymology. 2. The Viking homelands, geography and social life. 3. The Viking expansion, Viking invasions. 4. Viking influence, art and trade. 5. The end of the Viking age. 6. Literature cited. Each chapter will be posted separately, and this is important for me: Please comply: do not post in this thread until all 6 chapters have been posted. Thanks in advance! If you really have to, contact me through the private channels.
