Vikings! Their thirst for conquest was quenchless! Historians claim the Viking Age ended nearly a thousand years ago. But there remains one place on Earth where Vikings still rule: Minnesota! It began when Leif Ericson secretly invaded the state and claimed it for King Olaf of Norway. Today, Minnesota remains as one of the last outposts of that once-mighty empire.
Or not. Archaeologists say none of this ever happened. They say Minnesota has fallen victim to the greatest practical joke of all time. They say it’s better to get history right than to tell a good story.
But does anyone care what they say? Because Viking culture is alive and well in Minnesota, where you can dress like a Viking, eat like a Viking and fight like a Viking!
Welcome to Minnesota, the Lost Conquest of the Viking Age!
Following the film, a Q&A + discussion will take place with Director Mike Scholtz. Presented by Frozen River Film Festival.
