Explore the Worlds of Vikings and The Bible

By History.com Staff

The History.com team has been pretty busy the last few weeks getting ready for the premieres of two brand-new series. We thought we’d give you a peek at what we’ve been up to. We hope you enjoy all this new content as much as we do!

Vikings (Sundays at 10/9c)
In our first scripted drama, we follow the story of Ragnar Lothbrok, a young Viking warrior whose yearning to explore new worlds puts him at odds with both his local chieftain and the long-held traditions of his people. Visit our new show site for tons of amazing content about Vikings, including dozens of videos, photos, character bios and a new infographic that explores the mythology of the Viking world. You can also catch up on the series with full episodes and an exclusive video series that you takes you inside of each episode with series creator Michael Hirst.
