The sagas describe how these weapons were wielded not by kings or gods but by ordinary men as part of their everyday lives Viking Weapons and Combat Techniues provides an introduction to the arms and armor of the people who lived in Northern Europe during the Viking age roughly the years 793–1066 Using a variety of available sources including medieval martial arts treatises and copiously illustrated with images of historical artifacts battle sites and demonstrations of modern replicas of Viking weapons the author and his colleagues at Hurstwic a Viking age living history organization.
