VIKINGS: Secrets of the Viking Sword

By Henrik Palmgren | redice.tv
In our continuing series on Viking culture and history, we cover the secrets of the impressive Ulfbehrt viking sword.



"The Vikings were among the fiercest warriors of all time. Yet only a select few carried the ultimate weapon of their era: the feared Ulfberht sword. Fashioned using a process that would remain unknown to the Vikings’ rivals for centuries, the Ulfberht was a revolutionary high-tech tool as well as a work of art. Considered one of the greatest swords ever made, it remains a fearsome weapon more than a millennium after it last saw battle. But how did Viking sword makers design and build the Ulfberht, and what was its role in history?"
