They added: “Some Icelanders did settle in ‘Vinland’, but never had good relations with the Native Americans. These united against them and drove them out.”
Ubbe and Torvi (Georgia Hirst) arrived in North America to find that long-missing boatbuilder Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård) had already settled there and built a strong relationship with the Native community.
In reality, their relationship would have been much more hostile, and Floki most likely wouldn’t have survived very long on his own.
Rather than setting up camp on the Natives’ doorstep, the Viking explorers would have been driven further inland to avoid further conflict and eventually died out.
