    1. Over the last few years I've been reading some of the great sagas, so it was time for some sort of historical overview. This effort, which I picked up at a used book store, did the job, and with a minimum of "Thorfinns" (the Viking equivalent of "Smith" or "Jones"). It's dry, but not as dry, given the academic tenor of the book, as it could of been. The first third of the book covers the Viking glory years (which only about 200 years or so). The rest of the book is comprised of chapters focusing [...]

    2. Dad is soon to turn 92. His wife, Lene, has gone to visit family in Denmark and I'm staying at their home in East Dundee, Illinois while she's away, raking leaves, cleaning gutters and minding Father. This is the first time I've actually lived with him since the early nineties.

My reading records only begin i [...]

Il fatto è che l'autore si perde in descrizioni sì molto minuziose degli scavi archeologici, ma che alla fine mancano di una conclusione, come un lavoro di ricerca senza una tesi o sintesi finale. Le parti più interessanti del libro sono quelle sulla religione, dove vengono confermate -- e non posso nascondere una certa sorpresa -- alcune tesi (quelle meno farneticanti) di Vikernes (si, quello di Burzum, quello l [...]

    4. Written prior to what John Marsden refers to as the “rehabilitation” of the Vikings (i.e. during the period in which the Vikings were viewed primarily as raiders and invaders, rather than explorers and merchants) but still pretty even-handed in its treatment of the Norsemen. He does not reject out of hand Leif Eriksson’s discovery of North America, even though this book was written before the discovery of the Norse settlement at L'Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland – but, coincidentally pu [...]
