The term Vikings originates from Old Norse ‘víkingr’ and it refers to Germanic Norse seafarers, speaking the Old Norse language.

They raided and traded from their Scandinavian homelands across wide areas of northern and central Europe, as well as European Russia, during the late 8th to late 11th centuries.

The contemporary representation of the Vikings is typically based on cultural clichés and stereotypes which, in turn, can influence our appreciation of the Viking legacy and culture.

The intention of this documentary is to reveal the true nature of the Vikings and also to give a profound insight to their world as accurately as possible.

Embark on an epic journey and discover the truth behind the myth of the Vikings.
