Summary
While infamous for their fearsome conquests, the Vikings were also expert seafarers, skilled traders, and courageous explorers who traveled far and wide from Scandinavia to Europe and into Asia. The 1960s discovery of the only Viking site in North America, on the northernmost tip of Newfoundland, proved that the Norse had actually made it to America, as suggested in the Vinland sagas. But how far did they get? Using satellite technology, excavation, and analysis of archaeological evidence, space archaeologist Dr. Sarah Parcak, archaeologist Douglas Bolender, historian Dan Snow, and a team of leading experts from around the globe investigate what may be the first new Viking site discovered in North America in over 50 years, at Point Rosee in southern Newfoundland. Explore the rich cultural heritage of the Vikings, and investigate the truth behind the legends of these intrepid adventurers and their journey to North America, as NOVA unveils the findings of what could be the furthest known point of the entire Viking expansion
