NEW HARBOR — The Nova film “Lost Viking Army” 2019 is scheduled to be screened at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 10, at the Pemaquid Point Learning Center, Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Park, 3115 Bristol Road.

A brief discussion led by Neill De Paoli, historic site manager at Colonial Pemaquid and historical archaeologist, will follow the 52-minute film.

Colonial Pemaquid cohosts with the Bristol Parks and Recreation Department a series of films that cover a variety of historical and archaeological topics that cut across the globe. Admission is free.

The film explores the story of an archaeological discovery made in England 40 years ago of a mass grave of nearly 300 individuals. Their story remained unsolved until now.

Bioarchaeologist Cat Jarman considers these bones to be the remains of the “Great Heathen Army,” a legendary Viking fighting force that invaded England in the 9th century.

Jarman’s team of high tech archaeologists and scientists uncover extraordinary stories, including evidence of women warriors and a lost king reunited with his son in death. They wrap up their project with a search for the Viking warriors’ camp.
