In the Picturing the Past series, this book explains exactly what the title implies. It has maps showing where they traveled, and photos of tools they used and modern copies of what their homes looked like.
The book does a good job of explaining why the Vikings of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden had to take to the sea for a livelihood. Exploration and trade are featured in the book and accompanied by photos and sketches. Ages 7 to 9 years. Good for Elementary School Projects
