The Ship in the Hill
"The Oseberg ship, unearthed from a hill in Norway in 1904, dumfounded archeologists because it contained the grave of a woman. Historians had assumed that the Viking world - and certainly Viking ships - were ruled by men. A historical novel based on the excavation, 'The Ship In the Hill' tells the story of tow women struggling with power and love - Dr. Kirstin Williams, an American archeologist unearthing the ship in 1904, and Asa of Agthir, the Viking queen who sailed it a thousand years before"--P. [4] of cover.
