This epic 13-minute film runs four times an hour continuously as an installation where the audience can enter and exit the venue freely.

This film is a fact-based account placing the Viking Age in the context of European history. The Viking Age began in the late eighth century and lasted until a gradual transition into the Christian faith was completed some three hundred years later. Ultimately this film takes a time travel to leap from the Futhark alphabet and the times of the Viking runes — into the digital age and the resurgence of Viking culture and storytelling in contemporary entertainment.
