In this talk from mid-November, best-selling author Arthur Herman talks about his book, The Viking Heart. In this book, Arthur Herman melds a compelling historical narrative with cutting-edge archaeological discoveries and DNA research to trace the epic story of this remarkable and truly diverse people. He shows how the Scandinavian experience has universal meaning, and how we can still be inspired by their indomitable spirit and the strength of their community bonds, much needed in our deeply polarized society today. The talk was moderated by Dr. Elizabeth DeNoma.
