Michael Wood, In Search of Eric Bloodaxe

His time in Northumbria, his defeat and voyages to Spain (over 4 years), his return and victory.

Viking legends incorporated into Christian cross.

His betrayal at Stainmore and his death, his wife Brunhild's tribute wherein Eric is welcomed into the halls of Valhalla.

Quite an impressive re-creation and research, as always.

Highly engrossing.
