"Vikings in Ireland" with James L. Nelson. In medieval times, the Vikings swept out of Scandinavia in their devastating descent on Europe. Nowhere was their impact greater than in Ireland, where they came first to raid but soon became an integral part of Irish society. Harpswell author James L. Nelson, author of the Norsemen Sagas, including the recent novel Glendalough Fair, will discuss the Viking invasion of Ireland and the impact of that collision of cultures that is felt even today. Jim will have copies of his book for sale.
