Audiobook The Vikings


Vikings, The Teaching Company
(36 lectures, 30 minutes/lecture)
Taught by Kenneth W. Harl
Tulane University
Ph.D., Yale University
Чрезвычайно увлекательное повествование о "людях Севера", которые держали в страхе всю Европу в пору раннего средневековья. Отдельно рассмотрено влияние викингов на историю древнерусского государства. Must listen!

As explorers and traders, the Vikings played a decisive role in the formation of Latin Christendom, and particularly of Western Europe.

In this course, you will study the Vikings not only as warriors, but also in other roles for which they were equally extraordinary: merchants, artists, kings, raiders, seafarers, shipbuilders, and creators of a remarkable literature of myths and sagas.

32kbs, 18 parts (approx. 14mb each) + Course Guidebook.
