First printing. Brown binding. 239 pages. Black and white illustrations. Notes. Bibliography. Index. ~ Book is fine, clean, with two tiny negligible rub marks, no interior marks or writing. There is a bookplate of Robert Kellogg (d. 2006), former professor and Dean of University of Virginia College of Arts and Sciences, on the front pastedown. Kellogg was a scholar of early Icelandic/medieval literature, and this thus makes for a nice association. The dust jacket is also fine, crisp, with one tiny bit of wear at the back corner of the head of spine. Now in a clear archival cover. ~~ "The first book-length study in English to investigate what women did in the Viking Age, both at home in Scandinavia and in the Viking colonies from Greenland to Russia." The author pieces together the fragmentary evidence gleaned from runic inscriptions, place names, personal names, art, Old Norse literature and mythology, and other sources, and creates a portrait of their daily life, work, activities, and dress, as well as how they were viewed by the men of the society. This study serves to complete the picture of Viking society, in that the familiar images of violent and ruthless male figures are now complemented by the images and contributions of their women.
