Perhaps you've been watching "The Vikings" on The History Channel. It is a challenging and complex topic but the series is very entertaining. The series was written by Michael Hirst of Elizabeth & The Tudors.
Back in 2014, Leslie Eastman joined me for a discussion of "The Vkings". Barry Jacobsen discussed the history, myth, and legends based on The History Channel's new series, focused on famed raider Ragnar Lothbrok. Then, Thrand Godfrey discussed the weapons, tactics, battles and his video projects on the subject.
Leslie wrote a great post about the show and the series. Check it out!
