Also - the NOVA film (2 hours) goes into greater detail on all their topics -but it is a dryer more 'academic' film.
Overall - great intro film if you find yourself intrigued by the Vikings :)
Another mystery is why all of "civilized" Europe stayed within comfortable sight of land, while only the Vikings had the courage to sail beyond the horizon, braving the monsters and the end of the earth. Some say it was just greed, but that greed had to be backed up with a lot of courage and skill. It took another 500 years before Columbus risked a western voyage.
This film re-build the long Viking ship in sail and oar across the Atlantic into America East Coast. They interact with Native Americans and both sides suffered casualties around the first millennium - 500 hundred years before Columbus!
This is a good inductory to American history as to who are the first great explorers - Eric the Red and his son, Leif Erricsson
or Christopher Columbus.
