Just smashed through the eps so far, epic show. Have a degree in medieval studies so had the chance to read alot about the viking invasions during uni. The show is really pretty accurate for what it is, surprisingly so.
My favourite bit so far was the bit where you had the monk explaining to the Vikings why treasure ended up hoarded in the monasteries and them saying how silly this was, only to be followed by other vikings then burying all the treasure that had been taken from said monasteries so that he could use them in the afterlife, and even with a human sacrafice as a guard.
