Image for VikingsNot currently available on BBC iPlayer

Duration: 40 minutes

We think of the Vikings as marauding warriors from Scandinavia who attacked Britain, but they were much more than this. They were explorers, traders, and adventurers, too. In four films, based on the BBC Two series Vikings, Neil Oliver explores the real Vikings at home and at sea behind the popular image.
