Viking Age War Fleets


In the Scandinavian societies of the Viking Age the ship was omnipresent. Politically, ideologically and economically the ship played a central role, and in the military operations, which are the subject of this book, the ship and its armed crew were the fundamental means of achieving military goals. This publication deals with the organizational, resource-related and operational aspects of the building and use of ships for warfare in 11th-century Denmark.

Reviews & Quotes

"“…it is a rewarding read with a thought-provoking message, with the tables readily to hand for those who wish to delve more deeply into the evidence. There are two appendices, a glossary, extensive footnotes, and a very full bibliography. The lack of an index is, to this reviewer, its only shortcoming.”"
Colin Martin
