A collection of three films on the history of the Vikings in North America. Titles include: The Man Who Discoverd America: Explorer Helge Ingstad, whose search for traces of Viking settlements has taken him from Mexico to Newfoundland, has discovered America in a way that few others have or ever will (20 min. 38 sec.); The Vinland Mystery: In 1960, Helge Ingstad and his archaeologist wife, Dr. Anne Stine Ingstad, discovered the only authenticated Viking settlement in North America, at L'Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland. This documentary tells the story that turned back the pages of North American history (28 min. 59 sec.); and Viking Visitors to North America: Traces of Norsemen, real or imagined, have challenged archaeolgists and historians for years. This film examines the theories and records of these explorations (22 min. 55 sec.).
