New se­ries. Dan Snow is joined by space ar­chae­ol­o­gist Dr Sarah Par­cak, who uses satel­lites 383 miles above the earth to spot ru­ins as small as 30cm, to search for ev­i­dence of Vik­ing set­tle­ments in North Amer­ica, try­ing to prove that they set­tled in the New World 500 years be­fore Colum­bus. Dan ex­plores how they trav­elled west as first raiders, then set­tlers and traders through­out Bri­tain and be­yond to Ice­land and Green­land, be­fore ex­ca­vat­ing what could be the most west­erly set­tle­ment ever dis­cov­ered.
