Editorial Reviews

What's the real story behind the powerful Norsemen who ransacked Britain's peaceful monasteries? Were they simply blood-drenched pillagers? Or savvy medieval adventurers and entrepreneurs? Discover exciting new insights as historian Neil Oliver digs for clues. You'll travel to archaeological sites in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, where Norsemen launch expeditions and raids. Follow their hunt for money - taking it by force from rich Anglo-Saxon and French kingdoms, and trading silk, bronze, and slaves from Dublin to Russia and Constantinople. Watch as the warriors settle Britain, Iceland, and Greenland and transform themselves from illiterate pagans into Christian farmers, statesmen, and kings - all in less than 200 years. The dramatic truth behind the legends will change your understanding of Vikings forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent BBC production March 16, 2014
Verified Purchase
Received this DVD in the mail a couple days ago. It was way better than I expected. Extremely well done by the BBC. High budget documentary. Takes you on locations in Denmark, Norway, Iceland, and Sweden. The Narrator is excellent. The production with any other narrator would be good because it is a high quality film with a lot of detail. But the narrator puts this documentary over the top because he is extremely good. This is a documentary that I will watch many times to catch all the details. Very glad that I bought this BBC production. The best Viking documentary that I have ever seen. And I have seen most of them. Tom in San Diego.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Documentary May 11, 2014
WOW! I'm so glad I bought this DVD. I'll be watching it many times. The presenter is very good, full of personality, and has a knack for explaining his knowledge. The sites are authentic, the museum pieces are beautifully presented and explained, even the habitat and diet of the Vikings, their religion, burial practice...nothing left out. I can't say enough about this fascinating video.

Excellent show about the Vikings. the cover though is silly as Vikings never wore horned helmets. The narrator really goes into depth about the Vikings who were great adventurers and traders. They even founded Russia. But he doesn't forget that they were also monstrous when raiding and killing people. Often whole towns would be butchered. The real wealth though was with slaves and that's what a smart Viking would go for. This show has three high budget episodes where our narrator travels to all the locations he's talking about. And he gives us the story of the Vikings from the pre Viking days to their 300 years as rampaging warriors, traders, and explorers, and settlers. This is a big story but it's handled well. This does NOT recreate the stories and history that is being talked about though. This is a GREAT informative history show that gives you a lot of info that is interesting and well done.
