Eaters Of The Dead – Michael Crichton [Unabridged]

Eaters of the Dead: The Manuscript of Ibn Fadlan Relating His Experiences with the Northmen in A.D. 922 (later republished as The 13th Warrior to correspond with the film adaption of the novel) is a 1976 novel by Michael Crichton. The story is about a 10th-century Muslim who travels with a group of Vikings to their settlement.

Crichton explains in an appendix that the book was based on two sources. The first three chapters are a retelling of Ahmad ibn Fadlan’s personal account of his actual journey north and his experiences with and observations of the Rus’, the early Russian people. The remainder is based upon the story of Beowulf.
