The Little Book of Viking Age Symbols. By Jacqui Alberts, J. S. Hopkins, and Mathias Nordvig.


More referenced than ever in today’s popular culture, the Viking Age was a complex and vibrant period of history that left behind an incredibly lush landscape of imagery and literature. Yet navigating this material can be complex and difficult.

In this unique resource intended for artists, creatives, and anyone else who may be curious, researchers Joseph S. Hopkins and Mathias Nordvig (University of Colorado Boulder) dive into the symbolism of both Viking Age Scandinavia and that of speakers of closely related languages and cultures, such as the Anglo-Saxons and speakers of continental Germanic languages. Artist Jacqui Alberts accompanies each entry with illustrations of objects from the historic record.
