Thora has been of the most use to me and the most consistent. Don't just read
what she wrote thought. Look through the resources she used that you can get
your hands on. Inter Library Loan is a god send.
As for the time period... this is also my time period. You do have to be careful
the Viking time period does go through the EARLY 1000's. But not much further.

I'm taking my first foray into Viking. Specifically, 11th century
So think Eastern Viking. But general information will help so don't
