Viking Apocalypse

Viking Apocalypse
In the south of England, road builders make a shocking discovery. While digging out a roadway, they uncover a shallow grave, filled with a tangled mass of headless skeletons and a pile of severed skulls. The findings are remarkable, reopening the file on an ancient atrocity. For centuries, Viking warriors terrorized the peoples of Europe, Asia and Africa, plundering homes, destroying crops and raping women.
