Viking historian Justin Pollard explains shipbuilding and navigation, Norse culture and religion, and the first encounters between Viking warriors and the kings of England and France. Interviews with cast and crew reveal the process of dramatising this gripping story, from reviving the Old Norse language to choreographing battle scenes and building ancient temples for human sacrifice.
