Monumenta Orcadica. The Norsemen in the Orkneys and the Monuments they have left

Abstract

THIS handsome quarto volume from the pen of the learned head of the Art Museum of Christiania is issued in a bi-lingual form, being divided into two parts; the first is an abridgment in English of the second, which is in Norwegian. It appears at an opportune time, when the ties connecting the two kingdoms are closer than they have ever been since the separation of the islands with which it deals from the Scandinavian kingdom on the marriage of the daughter of Christian I. to the Scottish king in 1469.

Monumenta Orcadica. The Norsemen in the Orkneys and the Monuments they have left.

By L. Dietrichson. With original drawings and some chapters on St. Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall, by Johan Meyer. Pp. xiv+200. (Kristiania; London: Williams and Norgate, 1906.) Price 3l. net.
