    The Long Ships

    I am not posting my own story but I felt this was the most appropriate place for this. I am from Sweden and generally very interested in vikings. Although I have read quite a few textbooks about vikings, one of the best books I have read about viking culture is a fictional tale by authour Frans G. Bengtsson, called The Long Ships.

    I have read the original book in Swedish and although some of the nuances will be lost in translation, I am certain that the story and events will still maintain their power. I heartily recommend all you vikings to read it.
