Amazing interactive features and a wealth of information transport you to the days when the Vikings ruled the seas! The first adventure in the exciting new Lost Worlds series.
For more than two hundred years, during the Vikings heyday, all Europe shivered in fear at their terrifying approach. This lavishly illustrated and interactive book explains why. It illuminates every aspect of Viking history and culture, from their legends and lore to their journeys of exploration and their discovery of America five hundred years before Columbus.
Most exciting of all, the volume contains dozens of special features to heighten the experience, with gatefolds featuring a Viking map, a cut-through illustration of a longship, a depiction of the Bayeux tapestry showing the Normans attacking England, five embossed Runestone concertina “booklets that actually allow you to feel the inscriptions on the page, and accounts of Viking legends re-imagined by some of Europe's premier fantasy artists. As readers enjoy pouring through the book, they'll find out exactly who the Vikings were, why they left their homeland, how they waged war, and what weapons they used. The attractive design incorporates authentic Norse design motifs throughout.
