- The Poetic Edda is the essential source, in a modern and updated translation, to understand and appreciate the beliefs, motivations, and values of the Vikings. The Poetic Edda inlcudes the "Havamal", which are poems attributed to Odin that present advice for living, proper conduct and wisdom.
- The Age of the Vikings tells the full story of this exciting period in history. Drawing on a wealth of written, visual, and archaeological evidence, it captures the innovation and pure daring of the Vikings without glossing over their destructive heritage. It 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. The Age of the Vikings sheds new light on the complex society, culture, and legacy of these legendary seafarers.
- A Little Book About the Runes is a short and easy to read book that tells the story of the runes. It explains each rune in the Younger Futhark with the help of a runic poem dating from the Viking Age - just as they were taught a thousand years ago. Each rune is also translated to the modern equivalent in the alphabet.
