The Northern World: The History and Heritage of Northern Europe

"The Northern World: The History and Heritage of Northern Europe" by Christine E. Fell and David M. Wilson
PDF | 1980 | 248 pages | ISBN: 0810913658 | English | 52 MB

Germans and Anglo-Saxons, Picts, Scots, Irish, Welsh, Scandinavians, and Northern Slavs all met and mingled in the chill northern reaches of Europe, righting, trading, settling, intermarrying, and influencing one another—and our own lives—to an extent that is only being truly appreciated today.
