Leif Eriksson the Lucky

Lecture no. 5 from the course: History's Greatest Voyages of Exploration

Leif Eriksson the Lucky

Taught by Professor Vejas Gabriel Liulevicius | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

While the story of Leif Eriksson and the Vikings is relatively well known, Professor Liulevicius takes you deeper into the question of why the Vikings, or Norsemen, explored, as evidenced by their broader culture of adventure and values that pressed them onwards in often violent ways.

+++++ Content is both interesting, informative and accurate. The highly articulate and intelligent presenter is genuinely and appropriately enthusiastic. Script is logical and detailed. - - Too many missed opportunities for artefacts, visual images, diagrams and maps.
