This is a great way to quickly learn about a subject you have an interest in, but don't have the time for study or long courses. At an hour it pretty much gets to the point. It was not real exciting, just like any history lesson, it is dates, names and places, but only for an hour. I did learn a couple of things. I have always wondered what made the Vikings so mean and why did they think it was okay to rape, pillage and kill. According to this, they were not any worse then any other group at the time. The world was full of tribes, gangs, bullies, who were doing the same as the Vikings. They earned this reputation because they robbed churches and killed priests. It seems everybody else was doing the same as the Vikings, except they left the churches alone. The natives could not believed they sacked churches.
I also discovered that when the Vikings discovered Greenland and Iceland, the harbors were clear of Ice because the world was going through a warming phase at the time. Since then we have had Global Cooling and the harbors are often frozen over..
