Recommended Reading. ...Yar.
Some books to satisfy the inner Viking in us all.

A History of the Vikings, by Gwyn Jones

The Saga of Gisli, translated by Ralph B. Allen

Viking - Hammer of the North, by Magnus Magnusson

Myths of the Norsemen, From the Eddas and Sagas, by Guerber

Beowulf the Warrior, edited by Ian Serraillier

Sadly, most of the books are too old to have cover pictures, and my particular version of The Saga of Gisli is too old to exist in Amazon's databases! Humph. Still, both Gisli and Beowulf are incredibly good versions of the story, Beowulf being eclipsed (in my mind) only by the recent Olde English/Modern English split version, found here.

Anyone else have recommendations?

Mmm, ancient cultures... *drool*
Popping into say "hi", I suppose.

Family originally came from Norway those many generations ago, and somehow we all ended up in Southern California.

It's like penguins in the Bahammas -- somthin' ain't right.

But no matter -- on with the Viking love!

Hooray for being of Viking descent! One day we'll all be in Valhalla together, killing each other and feasting upon the flesh of the magic boar. Oh, and drinking copious amounts of mead, of course.

This is Awesome.
There are no words to describe how happy I am to know that there are other proud Scandinavian descendants out there. In short, let me just say, I love you guys.

This journal has been quiet since I joined. Just thought I'd say hello.
