7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Take an in-depth look at the dramatic Viking expansion across the North Atlantic from 850 to 1000 CE with William Fitzhugh, of the Smithsonian Institution, as he corrects popular beliefs about the so-called Vikings of North America using new archaeological evidence from arctic and subarctic regions. Fitzhugh will also highlight the likely causes of the western Norse colonies’ failure and whether these implications may impact future arctic exploration.
All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the program.
