ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Robert Macleod lives on the remote Scottish coastline and has a passionate interest in the Viking age. His inspiration comes from an old journal belonging to his grandfather Tom Macleod, which documents the discovery of long-forgotten Viking relics. Robert has traced these treasures to a Viking burial site, now fully excavated to reveal fragments of a boat and the remains of a once-great Viking noble.
