He not only explains the Viking attacks, but also looks at Viking endeavors in commerce, politics, discovery, and colonization, and reveals how Viking arts, literature, and religious thought evolved in ways unequaled in the rest of Europe.

Cost: The talk is $7 for Museum members / $10 for non-members with Museum admission

Time: The book signing begins at 4 p.m., and is free. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
