Vikings in America
Published August 2009 by Birlinn, Edinburgh.

For four centuries or more, from their first visits around AD 1000 to the eve of the Columbus voyages, the Vikings explored and settled thousands of miles of the coasts and rivers of North America. From New York’s Long Island to the Canadian High Arctic the New World was a playground for Viking adventurers. And the name the Vikings gave to this New World – America.

Reviewed by Medieval History. "A well-researched, interesting and thought provoking book which is sure to create fresh debate... Graeme Davis writes in a descriptive and lively style... A fascinating look at Viking history".
