Trivia

Ravens appear prominently in the series. Ravens had great cultural and religious importance in ancient Norse society, as they were seen as the agents of Odin who was said to own two ravens: Hugin (meaning "Thought") and Munin (Memory) who flew around and gathered information for him. One of Odin's many nicknames is Hrafnaguð, which means "Raven God". Vikings would carry banners depicting ravens. Ragnar's forces carry such banners. As such, the pagan characters in the series are likely to believe that when ravens appear, they are watched by Odin. See more »

User Reviews

 
Thanks, History Channel!
5 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

I've watched the two first episodes of the series and I can say that I'm POSITIVELY surprised.

I didn't know if this would be any good but I'm most certainly intrigued. It's well written, exciting and charming. The show is very enjoyable, especially if you're interested in Scandinavian/European history.

I love Norse Mythology and I am very happy that this show aired, I just hope it continues going in a good direction. :)

All in all I can't wait for the remaining episodes and if you're considering picking this show up I'd definitely recommend it.
