Summary Vikings: the real warriors. "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. Watch in amazement 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"-- description from previous, stand-alone DVD release.
Viking war: last battle of the Vikings. "Nowhere in the British Isles was the Viking connection longer-lasting or deeper than in Scotland. Hundreds of years after their first hit-and-run raids, the Norsemen still dominated huge swathes of the country. But storm clouds were gathering. In 1263 the Norwegian king Haakon IV assembled a fleet of 120 longships to counter Scottish raids on the Norse Hebrides. It was a force comparable in size to the Spanish Armada over three centuries later. But like the Armada, the Norse fleet was eventually defeated by a powerful storm. Driven ashore near present-day Largs, the beleaguered Norsemen were attacked by a Scottish army. The outcome of this vicious encounter would mark the beginning of the end of Norse power in Scotland. Marine archeologist Dr Jon Henderson tells the incredible story of the Norsemen in Scotland. Visiting fascinating archeological sites across Scotland and Norway, he reveals that, although the battle at Largs marked the end of an era for the Norsemen, their presence continued to shape the identity and culture of the Scottish nation to the present day"-- from BBC website.
Blood of the Vikings. A 2001 BBC Television documentary series that traced the legacy of the Vikings in the British Isles through a genetics survey. "The Vikings were an ambitious, daring and frightening people who left an indelible mark on the British psyche. Yet archaeology has revealed very little about their time in Britain and even less about what happened to them afterwards. Archaeologist Julian Richards finds new evidence about what really happened during the dramatic period when Vikings roamed the seas around Britain. And in a ground-breaking genetics research project designed specially for the BBC series, internationally renowned geneticist, Professor David Goldstein, sets out to answer some of the most intriguing questions about the Vikings. Samples taken from around 2,000 people in Britain, Ireland, Scandinavia and Northern Europe have been processed and the results are revealed during the series"-- from Episodes include First blood, Invasion, The sea road (included on disc with disc surface title Blood of the Vikings / disc menu title Blood of the Vikings: first blood) ; The last of the Vikings (included on disc with disc surface title Blood of the Vikings / disc menu title Blood of the Vikings: the last of the Vikings)
