    In the two centuries before the Norman invasion of England, Anglo-Saxon and Viking forces clashed repeatedly in bloody battles across the country.

Using... more...

  • Labour, Unions and Politics under the North Starby Mary Hilson; Silke Neunsinger; Iben Vyff

    Berghahn Books 2017; US$ 34.95

But as this volume demonstrates, narratives of the so-called "Nordic model" can obscure the fact that experiences of work and... more...

    Normanby Press 2017; US$ 3.99

    “A Sea Cadet in 1711 and a Vice Admiral in 1718, young Wessel barged into battle against his Swedish foes wherever he found them, often in direct violation of orders issued by timid souls in the Admiralty.
