Vikings: Journey to New Worlds provides a look at the impact and accomplishments of these warriors and explorers. While feared by many for their fighting prowess, these “Heathen from the North” contributed much to scientific and technical knowledge. They were not only fighters and slavers, but also traders, farmers, craftsmen, and poets. As the film illustrates, their shipbuilding skills enabled Leif Eriksson the Lucky to reach Vinland (Newfoundland) 500 years before Columbus crossed the Atlantic.
