Neil Oliver uncovers the truth about King Canute and explores how Christian conversions saw the Viking Age finally come to an end and the doors to European high society open.
Neil Oliver explores how the Viking Age finally ended, tracing the Norse voyages of discovery, the first Danish kings, and the Christian conversions that opened the door to European high society.
