The Art of the Vikngs - BBC 2013...

This half hour documentary was made by BBC FOUR as one of 12 episodes in the 'Secret Knowledge' series.

It focuses on viking culture as seen at an exhibition in Edinburgh with objects from the Swedish National Museum. 

It of course has nothing to do with the current 'Vikings - life and legend' exhibition at the British Museum in London.

Drama series such as HBO's 'Vikings' are interesting to people with an interest in viking history but it really needs to be mixed with 'real' information from historians / archaeologists who don't have high audience ratings as a measure of succes...
