Praise for Professor Chris Fee

“Chris Fee is one of the best teachers I’ve ever met. His knowledge of the Middle Ages, and of the Vikings, is exhaustive. I have learned so much from him, and I know all of the listeners will too.”
– Dr. Joshua Eyler, Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence and Adjunct Associate Professor of Humanities at Rice University

“Chris Fee is a tremendously engaging speaker—energetic, organized, and clear. As his students and colleagues in the academy know, Fee is deeply learned, but he wears his learning lightly. You couldn’t ask for a better guide to the ancient world of Northern Europe.”
– Stephen Harris, Ph.D., Professor of English at the University of Massachusetts Amherst

    Regular Price: $199.95

    Special Price $39.95

    “Scandinavian scavengers,” warlike pirates, raiders, and invaders—the Vikings have lately surfaced from the depths of maritime history to become some of mainstream America’s most adored ruffians.

    For medievalist Christopher R. Fee, Ph.D., the recent craze for all-things Viking is a mixed blessing. The spike in popular fascination often occasions the need to separate the wheat from the chaff: fact from fiction, history from myth, literature from legend.

    This series endeavors to right the ship by offering you a scholarly and thorough-going overview of Viking history, geography, literature, religion, and culture.
