Read full description of the books The Vikings (Great Courses, #3910):I love Audible's The Great Courses collection of books. They're informative, educational and, sometimes, even exciting.
I chose to listen to this lecture because I love Viking fiction and thought it'd be fun to get the real scoop on these sexy men. Well... so they aren't all as sexy as my favorite authors make them, clearly, but I still enjoyed learning their about their culture, their traditions, and their history.
Kenneth W. Harl does a great job of sharing his knowledge and opinions on the early Vikings. His enthusiasm, coupled with that knowledge, makes this an interesting, entertaining, read listen. So much information is imparted that I wish I had taken notes!
