Gaul was divided into three parts. No, four parts - for one small village of indomitable Gauls still held out against the Roman invaders.

Asterix and Obelix are lost at sea and finally reach what they think is a Roman colony, but when the Vikings turn up on a voyage of discovery, they realise that they have, in fact, discovered a strange New World.

Reviews for Asterix and the Great Crossing (#22 Asterix)

The Asterix books represent the very summit of our achievement as a literary race. In Asterix one finds all of human life. The fact that the books were written originally in French is no matter. I have read them all in many languages and, like all great literature, they are best in English. Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames. THE TIMES
