Viking Longship by Mick Manning, Brita Granstrom

Be a fly on the wall in the time of the Vikings.

These pages are packed full of up-to-date information about Viking life from the latest archaeological discoveries. With drawings, notes, wood shavings, straw, wolf fur and axe marks, this book shows you history as it really happened!

Reviews

A superb book which will be ideal for KS2 pupils studying the Vikings, for anyone interested in history - and to get everyone interested in history! Informative yet entertaining - the excellent, colourful illustrations are humorous and give children an idea of what it might have been like when the Vikings were around. || A cracking good story and an engaging narrative voice are the two key characteristics guaranteed to keep young readers

... illustration, design and writing work in perfect harmony to create a lively cast of Vikings, whose story keeps you turning the pages. The illustrations have a gorgeous, fresh, drawn-from-life feel. || There is so much detail in this book and the pictures and the story are so interesting that I thoroughly recommend it.
