Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough
Mon 28 Aug 2:15pm - 3:15pm
The Vikings voyaged to all corners of the medieval world and beyond - from the Arctic Circle to Constantinople, North America to Kievan Rus - and wrote up their, somewhat embellished, journeys in their sagas. Durham medievalist Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough follows in their wake in Beyond the Northlands, casting off fantasy and tying down historical fact. Chaired by Lee Randall.
