Brock professors edit book about the Viking age

somerville_full_cov3.inddTwo Brock professors have released a new book about the Viking world.

Angus Somerville, associate professor of English Language and Literature, and Andrew McDonald, associate professor of History, edited The Viking Age: A Reader. The book contains more than 100 readings, including straightforward Norse translations for students and 13 black-and-white illustrations.

“In The Viking Age: A Reader, Somerville and McDonald weave a tapestry from contemporary and nearly contemporary documents representing the Vikings, warts and all,” George Clark, professor emeritus of Queens University, said in a blurb for the book.

The reader was published by UTP Higher Education on April 15.
