The Vikings were among the fiercest warriors of all time. Yet only a select few carried the ultimate weapon of their era: the feared Ulfberht sword. Fashioned using a process that would remain unknown to the Vikings' rivals for centuries, the Ulfberht was a revolutionary high-tech tool as well as a work of art. Considered one of the greatest swords ever made, it remains a fearsome weapon more than a millennium after it last saw battle. But how did Viking sword makers design and build the Ulfberht, and what was its role in history? Now, NOVA uses cutting edge science and old-fashioned detective work to reconstruct the Ulfberht and finally unravel the "Secrets of the Viking Sword."
We recently rebranded and have since received a lot of compliments about the new look but also a lot of negative feedback about the name. The majority of the complaints can be summed up as it being "too political" or confusion over how to say SPKOUT.

You spoke out and we listened, BitChute is back! #BitChuteIsBack
Bit is synonymous with greater decentralization and using technology to take back power from large centralized corporate entities and place it into the hands of individuals. It is a technological word that has come to represent a fairer system.
Chute refers to a parachute, and is a beautiful representation of how we distribute bits of information to people wherever they might be. A wise man once said:
"A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it's not open." - Frank Zappa
