SECRETS OF THE VIKING NAVIGATORS
By Leif K. Karlsen

Many navigators have heard of the Viking sunstone legends but they don’t realize how they work now or how they were used thousands of years ago – and why the Viking navigators developed the unique tool to find the direction to the sun, even when the sun was blocked by clouds or fog.

Lief Karlsen, the world¹s foremost scholar on the Viking sunstone, examines the sagas and combines that information with the experience and practical research of just trying it out. Using clues for the the Icelandic Sagas, his experiences as a professional navigator, and from his voyages on the “Brogunknarren” – a 60′ Viking ship replica – Leif Karlsen reveals the secrets of Viking navigation. His extensive research on the workings of the Viking “sunstone” and ” horizon board” are explained in this interesting, valuable and educational contribution to the understanding of the Vikings’ success. SC, 2003, 208 pages. SW 1.1 lbs.
