Episode 3 of 3

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. He also uncovers the truth about England's King Canute - he was not an arrogant leader who thought he could hold back the waves, but the Viking ruler of an entire empire of the north and an early adopter of European standardisation.
