Dominic Sandbrook has been passionate about history ever since he
read the Ladybird children's books. As a historian, he has written
eight books for adults. He has also presented several BBC
television series, covering topics such as time travel, alien
invasions, the James Bond films and the Harry Potter stories. His
favourite book is The Lord of the Rings. His favourite football
team is Wolverhampton Wanderers.
He lives in Oxfordshire with his wife and son, Arthur. It was Arthur who came up with the idea for Adventures in Time, after a family trip to the Imperial War Museum. He now serves as the books' chief battle consultant.
Few plots can rival the real-life dramas played out in the superb
Adventures in Time series by the historian Dominic Sandbrook, one
of the most exciting new voices in children's non-fiction.
Many children will already be hooked on his brainy historical thrillers. The sixth in Dominic Sandbrook's Adventures in Time series introduces us to the scariest raiders of all as we meet Viking gods and giants, axemen and shield maidens.
