Program Overview for "The Viking Age": During the Viking Age people lived in terror of these sounds which signaled the sudden and brutal raids of the Norsemen. Any who resisted were slaughtered as these raiders looted monasteries, villages and cities for valuables. Then disappeared in their swift longships before any army could arrive to stop them. This is the enduring image of the Vikings, but there is so much more to their story. Join Historical Experiences on a trip to THE VIKING AGE. A mysterious age of Runes, Raids and Sagas. - You'll discover that these Scandinavians were excellent traders, craftsmen, ship-builders, inventors and navigators. - You'll learn how Viking raids disrupted the power structure of medieval kingdoms which ultimately resulted in the formation of the European nations that exist today. - The popular myths and fallacies surrounding Viking culture will also be dispelled.
