About the Event

This month's discussion will be about Don Holloway's The Last Viking: the true story of King Harald Hardrada.   '

King Harald III (called  Hardrada, or "Hard Ruler") of Norway was a real-life fantasy hero who  burst into history as a teenaged youth in a Viking battle, from which he  escaped with little more than his life and a thirst for vengeance.

The Last Viking is a  fast-moving narrative that reads like a novel, combining Norse sagas,  Byzantine accounts, Anglo Saxon chronicles, and even King Harald's own  verse and prose, into a single, compelling story. While pointing out  errors and contradictions in the ancient stories for the sake of  accuracy Don Hollway brings the true tale of this hero to life.
