An Introduction to Hnefatafl

Hnefatafl, the ancient Norse game of strategy, has intrigued scholars for more than a century. It was played not only in Scandinavia, but in the other countries where Scandinavians settled: the British Isles, Northern France and Germany, Ukraine, Iceland, Greenland and Newfoundland. It may have even reached such exotic places as Constantinople and mainland North America. After a period of obscurity, the game is once again gaining popularity. This book acts as an introduction to the game. It takes the reader through the game's history, starting with the Greek and Roman games that preceded it, through its history of expansion and decline, and onto the modern revival and its resurgence in the present day. Alongside the historical content the book gives full rules for a number of versions of hnefatafl old and new, as well as ancestor and descendant games. Illustrations include archaeological finds, explanatory diagrams, and photographs of games from the author's collection.
