Vikings in America

American History Hit

What is a Viking? Did they really make it to the United States? And if so, how far did they get?

Don speaks to Martyn Whittock about the norse landings in North America. From the Icelandic sagas to the archaeological evidence that supports them, listen as we separate the truth from the myths.

Martyn’s new book, American Vikings, is released on November 7 by Pegasus Books.

Produced and edited by Sophie Gee. Senior Producer was Charlotte Long.
