The Viking era, and the 1800s all start to appear all out of the blue in the modern-day Oslo. These people have no memory of how they jumped through time and are branded as “Beforeigners”. These individuals are treated as second class citizens. Years after (18 years). The mysterious appearance of the Beforeigners.
The so-called “Beforeigners” struggle to integrate. Into modern Norwegian society. Some 19th Century folks took on jobs as journalists. Teachers, and office workers. Most of the Vikings are homeless and sleeps in the parks. The stone age people live in the forest.
