Season 1: Episode 6 “Burial of the Dead”

Burial of the Dead is the sixth episode of the show, Vikings. The episode premiered on April 7, 2013.

 

Synopsis

Ragnar, weak and still recovering from his wounds, must meet the Earl head-on after it comes to light that Rollo has been tortured on Haraldson’s orders. The two men will come together face to face with a single outcome possible: Only one man will leave this fight alive.

 

Trivia

  • The Angel of Death in the episode was a female shaman called a Volva, who were ubiquitious in contemporary Norse culture. The term ‘Angel of Death’ as used by Bjorn in the episode, was recorded only once by the 10th century Arabic traveller and writer Ahmad ibn Fadlan, who described such a woman during his encounter with the Rus, Swedish Vikings, in Russia. Ahmad ibn Fadlan was the one who used the phrasing, not the actual Rus. The burial in this episode is closely based on Ahmad ibn Fadlan’s account.
