This book is in the Linking the Past and Present series offered by Heinemann. Along with a glossary and a list of key dates, the book deals with who they were, who were the raiders, how did they build ships, what new worlds did they discover, etc.
Like the book, The Vikings, by Jane Shuter this book, too, would be good for a school project. Colorful pictures include the “Then and Now” of various aspects of Viking life. The “Now” parts of the book explain what things in life today are part of what the Vikings bequeathed to us. Those items answer the question posed in the title of the book. Ages 8 to 10 years. Good for Elementary School Projects
