About the Show

Neil Oliver heads for Scandinavia to reveal the truth behind the legend of the Vikings. In the first episode of the series, Neil begins by discovering the mysterious world of the Vikings' prehistoric ancestors. The remains of weapon-filled war-boats, long-haired Bronze Age farmers, and a Swedish site of a Royal palace and gruesome pagan ritual conjure up an ancient past from which the Viking Age was to suddenly erupt.
