History Sets Sail With the New Series Vikings

A Viking raider caps off a growled command at his men by driving his ax into the ground. Hard. Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) is as strong as the steel blade — and just as lethal. He's a Norse legend brought to life in Vikings, History's first scripted series. "Ragnar is very ambitious," says ­Fimmel on set in Ireland, near the ­famous Powerscourt waterfall. "He starts out as a farmer, but it's not enough for him. He seeks adventure, knowledge and fame."

And to get it, he's gonna need a better boat. Ragnar secretly commissions the creation of a lighter, faster version of... read more
