Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough set out to explore the Norse sagas and the far-northern world that produced them by travelling thousands of miles in the footsteps of the Vikings. She uses her experiences and the weird and wonderful artefacts she discovered to illuminate the medieval Nordic world and their rich storytelling culture.
