The last Vikings : the epic story of the great Norse voyages by Kirsten A Seaver( )

20 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Late in the tenth century, the Norse Vikings embarked on a voyage of no return. Leaving Iceland first for Greenland, from there they sailed onwards to North America, setting foot on its shores five hundred years before Columbus' first journeys of discovery. But by about AD 1500 their settlements were abandoned and the Norse Greenlanders and their explorations of the New World receded into the realms of myth. What happened between these momentous events? How did the Vikings really live - and die - and why have so many myths and legends grown up around this mysterious people of the sea? Drawing on her deep knowledge of the culture and history of the region as well as the most up-to-date evidence from archaeology, medieval history and the evocative Sagas, Seaver weaves together a compelling and authoritative history. Alongside their spectacular achievements and discoveries, she also vividly evokes the last Vikings' daily lives and explains why their apparent departure in 1500 was not quite such a dramatic schism in the historical record as is often assumed. This compelling history of a people living at the fringes of the known world offers an illuminating entry into the world of the Norse Greenlanders which will captivate all who have ever wondered about the fate of the Vikings..."--Publisher description

The frozen echo : Greenland and the exploration of North America, ca. A.D. 1000-1500 by Kirsten A Seaver( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is now generally accepted that Leif Eiriksson sailed from Greenland across the Davis Strait and made landfalls on the North American continent almost a thousand years ago, but what happened in this vast area during the next five hundred years has long been a source of disagreement among scholars. Using new archaeological, scientific, and documentary information (much of it in Scandinavian languages that are a bar to most Western historians), this book confronts many of the unanswered questions about early exploration and colonization along the shores of the Davis Strait. The author brings together two distinct but tangential fields of inquiry: the history of medieval Greenland and its connection with the Norse discovery of North America, and fifteenth-century British maritime history and pre-colonial voyages to North America, including that of John Cabot

4 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HauptbeschreibungDraufgänger im rauen Nordwind "Gott schütze uns vor dem Zorn der Nordmänner!" war im Mittelalter ein verbreitetes Stoßgebet gegen die Schrecken der Meere. Vergleichsweise friedlich segelten andere Wikinger wie Leif Erikson in wagemutigen Expeditionen bis nach Amerika. Leif Erikson hat es vorgemacht, Kolumbus hat es nachgemacht? auch wenn der Genueser das damals nicht wissen konnte. Wofür der rund 500 Jahre später über zwei Monate gebraucht hat, war für Leif Erikson vergleichsweise ein Katzensprung. Dessen Vater hatte einen wagemutigen Schritt getan, so erzählt die Grönlandsag

Alexandra Voronine : Quislings unge hustru by Alexandra Andreevna Voronine Yourieff( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in Norwegian and Norwegian and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexandra Andreevna Voronine møtte kapteinVidkun Quisling, Fridtjof Nansens utsending til Ukraina, under hungersnøden i 1922. Knapt sytten år gammel giftet hun seg med Quisling og fulgte ham tilNorge. Et år senere forlot han henne i Paris til fordel for den vakre Maria Paseshnikova. Alexandra forteller hvordan hun opplevde kjærligheten, samlivet og sviket fra Quisling, og trekantforholdet med Maria. I denne perioden skjedde det store endringer i Quislings personlige liv og i hans politiske overbevisninger. I tillegg til det rike materialet som Alexandra satt inn med, fant forfatteren utallige dokumenter i norske og utenlandske arkiver som underbygger Alexandras fortelling, og dessuten gjorde det klart at dette ikke bare er historien om tre menneskers private liv under usedvanlige omstendigheter, men også en historie om et internasjonalt intrigespill.
