Viking Women

2x52' (ENG, GER, FRE), 2x45' (GER)
The Vikings changed Europe forever, yet half of them have almost completely disappeared from collective memory: the women.

Quite unjustly so, as they played an important role in the world of the Vikings and performed extraordinary deeds: Viking women commanded ships and settled colonies. Exclusive interviews with experts from around the globe draw an authentic picture of the Viking world. High quality recreations with an international top-class cast will lead us to the early medieval world of the Vikings and revive this fascinating, long-lost era.

The two-part documentary gives completely new insights into a fascinating culture, about which it seemed everything was already known. Based on characters of the Nordic sagas, the mini-series displays the life stories of two Viking women: those of Sigrun and Jova.
