Suitable for National Curriculum Key Stage 2-3, a title in the MYTHS AND CIVILISATIONS series which explores Viking myths, complemented by factual information. Illustrated with colour artwork, maps and diagrams.
A series of books which provides a new approach to the great civilisations of the past through their myths. By reading a dynamically illustrated and exciting myth, the young reader is drawn into the context and mentality of the civilisation in question. Each book contains a selection of 9 or 10 myths and the same number of historical/cultural themes. Each myth is coupled with a nonfiction spread. The myths, chosen for their references to important aspects of the civilisation, are retold and illustrated on dramatic black backgrounds. Each myth spread is followed by a non-fiction spread which focuses on an aspect of the civilisation and its material culture.
