One of the most significant events in human migration history occurred by accident when the Vikings took a wrong turn and landed on the northern tip of Newfoundland.

In Completing the Circle we used an engaging host to debunk the many myths associated with Vikings and tell the epic journey of how Viking explorers came to L'Anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland on a quest for resources. Reenacting the Vikings' dramatic encounter with local First Nations inhabitants, viewers are treated to a significant event in history—the first full-circle reunion of two different migrating branches of humans who had both left Africa 100,000 years ago! Reenactments, and CGI, were also used to tell another dramatic journey filled with suspense; that of the search for the Viking village and its ensuing archeological dig.
