Vikings is a historical drama television series written and created by Michael Hirst for the History Channel. Filmed in Ireland, it premiered on March 3, 2013 in Canada.
When the series first aired, we at Norhalla watched with curiosity to see what the producers were going to do. As with anything based on history, whether it is a show or a book, there are the historical facts, historical opinions, and the opinions and ideas of the producer. Our stance is that the show has an overall positive impact and keeps the people from the Viking era and their stories and beliefs alive and generates interest.
The first season the show aired, Norhalla supported their efforts by running a commercial on television. Enjoy our humble efforts at creating our first commercial!
Here we are a few years later, Norhalla still publishing books about the Norse and Viking stories. The History Channel's Vikings is scheduled for their fifth season to air in the fall of 2017.
It's A Viking Thing!
In the spirit of Nordic cooperation, we applaud and support the efforts of others in preserving and educating about Norse and Viking history and generating interest in Nordic culture.
