:: The Vikings of Bjornstad ::
The History Channel: Conquerors
William the Conqueror

The Vikings of Bjornstad traveled to Topanga Canyon State Park near Los Angeles on 31 January 2005 to portray combatants at the Battle of Hastings. We filmed host segments for the show with Greystone Productions and former USMC captain, actor and military technical advisor Dale Dye.  The Conquerors was first broadcast on the History Channel on 30 March 2005.

Thanks to Carl Clink for coordinating our involvement, to Mike Cady for many of the photographs and loaning me a hauberk, to Henrik Olsgaard for offering to loan me one and to Douglas Sunlin for driving Interstate 5.
