Useful in History Class 1 Nov. 2009
By Eileen Cunningham - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have purchased several DVDs in the "History of Warfare" series, including this one on the Vikings. I find them informative and appealing to students in my classes at a classical school, where I have used this one as background for a study of *Asser's Life of Alfred the Great* with advanced eighth-graders. There are re-enactments of Viking invasions as well as maps showing Norse routes to England, Ireland, France, the eastern Mediterranean, and even the northeastern coast of the American continent. While discussing the Viking world view, the video does a good job of explaining Valhalla, an after-life that looks a bit like Dante's vision of hell, it turns out. I do wish the video contained more information about the building of the Viking ships, but, all in all, I found it useful for my purposes.

A good overview of Viking History 3 July 2010
By Connie G Scammell - Published on Amazon.com
This English series is good at focusing on facts rather than dramatic Hollywoodish reenactments. From the end of the Roman Empire but more beginning with the 8th century to 1066 ("The Age of Reckoning"), this episode covers the Vikings in a nutshell: its society, religions, language, marauding and settling and finally demise.

Battle scenes play in the background as the narrator talks about the Viking raids into the British Isles from Scandinavia. Also covered, briefly, are the shallow longships, the "revolution of shipbuilding" which historians are convinced were able to reach the shores of North America, to Norse mythology and pagan practices; the anonymous Anglo-Saxon chronicles, the Dane Laws and Danes Geld are all represented here quite well.

Although the Vikings are known for their brutality, gore and violence are muted and silenced. The actors are silent in the background; all you hear are battle cries but no dialogue. There is no graphic gore here, making this series ideal for high school viewers. This episode is barely 47 minutes long and could be viewed in one standard classroom hour.

I especially enjoyed listening to the old English verse as written by anonymous writers of that era. The old English then sounds very much like a combination of Danish, Flemish, German, Dutch, French, which makes sense since Vikings are known to have settled in those areas.

Great for students 16 Dec. 2012
By Lulu Belle - Published on Amazon.com

This dvd gives background on the Vikings and their mythology without being at all inappropriate. It is an excellent documentary for the classroom, but may not always e super exciting to the students as it's very informative, rather than being what they would consider a movie.

Viking wars 16 Jan. 2011
By Jacinta - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Although the facts are all there, and no doubt true, the film itself could have been done much better. There was much repetitive use of the same pieces of film, often said to be depicting different people/events each time. The music didn't always 'fit' either, as evidenced mostly by the last scene, I felt.
Good classroom starter 10 May 2014
By bernie - Published on Amazon.com
This presentation "The History of Warfare: Viking Wars" (2009) makes a good introduction to the Viking world. It is not as much in depth as it is in width. There a few misplaced facts and innuendos. But they do not distract from the presentation.

Instead of just dry history by the numbers we also are introduced to:
The Origins of the Vikings
The design of Viking ships and weapons
The Dark Age era of Brittan
A quick overview of Viking Mythology
Brunanburh
The Battle of Maldon and its significant

Expert commentary from military historian Dr. David Chandler, which you may recognize form other presentations, add credence to this information.

What makes me think that this was made for a class is that the DVD also contains a "Test Your Knowledge" feature; you will be surprised as to how munch information you retain.
