This text not only tells the story of the Vikings in Britain but also uses advanced DNA testing to show how the influence of the Vikings has lingered genetically in modern Britain.

Blackwell North Amer
The Vikings have long been popular folk heroes, their exploits shrouded in the myths and legends which celebrate them as intrepid, war-like explores who sailed out into the unknown. We also think of them as the barbarians in horned helmets who ravaged Britain one thousand years ago and then faded away. But what were they really like, and what did they leave behind?
In Blood of the Vikings, archaeologist Julian Richards peels back the layers of fiction to reveal that the Vikings' contribution to our culture is much more profound and much more interesting.
