      • Narrator: At the end of the 8th century a wave of terrifying violence hit the costal settlements of Northern Europe. Viking raiders, they plunder, they killed indiscriminately, and with each attack the stories grew. Their leaders were legendary, even in their own time: Ivar the Boneless, Eric the Red, Harald Bluetooth, men who made their names through savagery. Our investigators are setting out to discover the world they lived in. They'll build a picture of a culture steeped in bloodshed and yet highly sophisticated. They'll reconstruct the ruined fortress of Harald Bluetooth, first King of all the Vikings. They'll find the hidden traces of a warlord's city buried beneath modern streets. And they'll examine the key piece of technology that set the Vikings apart from all other forces. Ships like these took Viking explorers like Eric the Red and Leif Ericsson further than anyone had ever gone before. Using the latest research and graphics technology, we will rebuild an extraordinary civilization and bring back the lost world of the Vikings.
