Welcome to a world of secret graves, mysterious death ships, newly-discovered skeletons, missing fortresses, and lost Long Ships. In this brand-new series, leading archaeologist Tim Sutherland travels to Scandinavia, Estonia, Britain and beyond to get new insights into the world of those they called the North Men - The Vikings.

What can analysis of unearthed Viking skeletons reveal? What is the truth about the infamous raids on places such as the Holy Island of Lindesfarne? What can we discover about the Viking way of life and death? What can we learn from recently discovered weapons, artefacts and long-buried Long Ships?

With the help of specially-filmed reconstructions and recreations and new graphic illustrations, Tim’s travels see him meet a host of experts and historians, who guide him through the latest findings and theories and explain just how the Viking world continues to give up its secrets.
 

Lost Viking Fleet Of Roskilde

The skeletons of an old lady and a younger woman found in a in a burial mound…does the evidence point to a ritual sacrifice or a high-status funeral? Were they a Queen and her daughter? How can their bones help piece together the story? It’s over to Tim to sift through the evidence and find out.

Viking Burial Ships Of Estonia

How and why did 41 strong young men from Sweden die? What does Tim make of the new theory that they were not warriors but diplomats on a peaceful mission? What can the bones of the dead men tell us?

The First Raid of the Vikings

Here, Tim Sutherland joins not one but two teams of archaeologists - one searching for the bones of those that died during that first Viking attack and the other for the remains of the original Saxon monastery and its churches. What will their discoveries reveal about the bloody realities of the Viking raid?
