Their burning desire to retrace the explorations of the 10th century Vikings is told with gusto, and Cunliffe interweaves stories of Viking adventures with Hirta's progress, relating a great deal about ancient Viking history and showing that the VIking spirit still lives on in present-day Scandinavians
