Dublin and the Viking World is a unique blend of the familiar and the unfamiliar, the broad generalisation and the rarefied detail, the well-known historical character and the ordinary Dubliner.
Dig through the layers of time to find the Viking past beneath our city streets.
Shipbuilding, praying, raiding, trading and playing – Viking customs and habits are brought to life in this richly illustrated account of the beginnings of Dublin town.
Viking Dublin was a vibrant, multicultural centre of commerce in early medieval Europe. Now Dublin is unique in the world for its enormous stock of preserved archaeological and written records. Together, they reveal intimate details of life in the city and bring us beyond the myths to a people who developed a small coastal settlement into a bustling hub of trade and craft.
Fully illustrated with photographs, drawings and new maps, Dublin and the Viking World takes readers into the streets and homes of a major Viking city. Expert authors explore the acclaimed Dublinia exhibition experience and the latest in world-class scholarship to show readers the realities of the world of Viking Dublin.
