History﹕Ragnar Lothbrok

【明報專訊】From around AD 800 to the 11th century, many Scandinavians left their homelands to seek fortunes elsewhere. These seafaring (航海) warriors, known collectively as Vikings or Norsemen ("Northmen"), began by raiding coastal sites in the British Isles. Over the next three centuries, they would leave their mark as pirates, raiders, traders and settlers on much of Britain and the European continent, as well as parts of modern-day Russia, Iceland, Greenland and Newfoundland. From Vikings (《維京傳奇》), we follow the adventures of Ragnar Lothbrok, a curious, compelling (引人注目) man who is always looking to break through barriers and discover new worlds to conquer (征服).
