Ibn Fadlan and the Land of Darkness: Arab Travellers in the Far North
Ibn Fadlan, translated with an introduction by Paul Lunde and Caroline Stone
In 922 AD, an Arab envoy from Baghdad named Ibn Fadlan encountered a party of Viking traders on the upper reaches of the Volga River. In his subsequent report on his mission he gave a meticulous and astonishingly objective description of Viking customs, dress, table manners, religion and sexual practices, as well as the only eyewitness account ever written of a Viking ship cremation.
