Embark on a captivating journey through the rich history, culture, and literature of the Vikings alongside world-renowned medievalist Professor Christopher R. Fee, Ph.D., recognized by The Princeton Review as one of America’s Top Professors.

Often portrayed as “Scandinavian scavengers,” ferocious pirates, raiders, and invaders, the Vikings have recently emerged from the depths of history to become pop culture’s most beloved rogues. Professor Fee acknowledges this recent Viking craze as a double-edged sword. The surge in popular fascination often necessitates separating fact from fiction, history from myth, and literature from legend.

This comprehensive 24-lecture audio series sets the record straight by offering you a scholarly and insightful overview of Viking history, geography, literature, religion, and culture. Professor Fee guides you through this exploration with his engaging and personable teaching style.

As you encounter the great Viking adventurers, you’ll delve into pivotal events such as the raid on the Lindisfarne monastery in 739 and the Norman invasion of Britain in 1066. You’ll also uncover lesser-known curiosities, including the etymology of the term “Viking,” the story of the Varangian Vikings who guarded the Byzantine Emperor, and the origins of the state we now know as Russia.

From enigmatic runic inscriptions to heroic sagas, pagan beliefs to the Danelaw region, you’ll ponder the Vikings’ enduring significance as you immerse yourself in the visible and invisible traces of their fascinating civilization.
