About the book

This book offers a scholarly view of how people lived, worked and built houses and other structures in the Viking Age. Instead of presenting a complete survey, the author has taken examples of settlements and house-sites - by now classical ones - as the basis for his attempt to present a general impression of buildings and building customs in Viking times.

Described in detail are buildings, their sites and probable construction techniques, the brief history of the times in which the structures were built and used, the people who inhabited them and how styles and uses changed over time. The excellent drawings show excavations, site plans and architectural details of several buildings and settlements, including a suggested reconstruction and structural techniques of a house of the Fyrkat type, a large bow-sided hall.
