We are pleased to announced that the History Channel's popular Vikings television programme, whose third season will premiere later this week, has recently released multiple complementary webcasts starring various departmental figures. The Channel has commissioned a series of 'webisodes' that cover the history, literature, and archaeology behind the TV show. York staff and alumni feature heavily, with appearances from Steve Ashby (York), Soren Sindbaek (now Aarhus), and Neil Price (now Uppsala). Steve's episode, on Ribe and the start of the Viking Age, is already available online, alongside access to all other episodes in the web-based series. Tune in!
