Well that's his new job to get that Scottish history thread up and running. I will have a word in his ear.

As a Viking, I totally reject Belgarion's suggestion that I don't exist.

And try telling the writers of the Anglo Saxon Chronicle that the blokes who kept raping and pillaging their Realms were not Vikings, and as they were there at the time and you weren't I take their word, more than yours.

Especially as I am related.

I suppose it will be replete with 110 pound female vikings in armor wielding swords with reckless abandon.

Looks interesting!

Can any of you recommend any other good "Viking" video or movies. I have seen the 13th Warrior but not much else rings a bell. Please no Marvel references, I'm looking for more historic depictions.

Travis is an INSANE Aussie. Makes sense that he'd end up playing a Viking. Man, to think of the times I've been out drinking with that madman. I'm surprised I survived.

Is there no way to watch these BBC ones outside of the UK? All of them look so good.

One more day.


And actually, The Bible is looking pretty good as well. A History Channel rebound?
