I’m pleased to say that Beardmore has made Gordon Campbell’s shortlist of the best books about the Norse in Canada. He’s a professor at the University of Leicester, and has a new book of his own just out, Norse America: The Story of a Founding Myth, with Oxford University Press, which I am about to order.
“Hunter’s account, which is securely anchored in archival evidence, is skillfully assembled as an unfolding drama. In this book, the Beardmore hoax has received its definitive treatment by a scholar who writes brilliantly for a general audience.”
