      My copy came yesterday.

      German Woodwork in the Viking Age by Martin Victor Rudolf.
      It details building Viking Age Houses of several types
      from primarily Stellerburg, Germany. Has good details
      in 134 illustrations and 35 plates. Unlike some other
      german publications of that time it seems untouched by
      Nazi influence on the archaeology. There were 20+
      structures inside the Stellarburg fort rings in the
      book. (not all of it was excavated, and I'm betting that
      in 1942 it came to a cease for a while. This dates to the
      ninth and tenth centuries.

      There are references and pictures of structure similarities
      to other sites. Gotland is one. There are no decorative
      carvings but lots of good small house building methods.
      Some are all timber, some apparently had wattle and daub too.

      If you are interested in building some actual buildings
      it's a very good start.
