Philip Parker was born in 1965 and is a former diplomat having studied History at Cambridge and International Relations at Johns Hopkins University’s Bologna Center. He has written widely on the worlds of late antiquity and the early Middle Ages and contributed reviews and articles to The Literary Review, The Financial Times and BBC History Magazine.

His latest book, the Sunday Times best-seller The Northmen’s Fury, is an in-depth and fascinating reappraisal of the Viking world, which ranges from the steppes of Russia, through the Scandinavian heartland, to the furthest flung Norse settlement in Newfoundland. Philip lives in London.
