After his successful raid, Ragnar and his crew joyously return home with their riches. Earl Haraldson doesn't hesitate to summon Ragnar to the great hall where he lays claim to the entirety of the treasure. He allows the crew to take one thing from the hoard and Ragnar selects Brother Athelstan as his slave. From Athelstan, he learns the political structure in England and wants to learn some of the language. Haraldson sanctions a new raid but insists that one of his men, Knute, join Ragnar's crew. Ragnar takes his wife this time and surprises everyone by putting Athelstan in charge of the farm. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


The vikings have so little contact with England that they believe that even the idea of land to the west is a total myth. However, Athelstan has traveled in their lands and later the vikings and the Engkish soldiers are shown speaking a common foreign language. This indicates a level of contact contact which belies the idea of England as a myth. See more »

The Choice
24 September 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Ragnar returns home with Rollo and his crew but Earl Haraldson claims the possession of the treasure, allowing each man to take only one piece. Ragnar selects the monk Athelstan to be his slave. Ragnar gets close to the monk and asks many questions to Athelstan to learn the structure of England and the behavior of people and learns English. Then he convinces Haraldson to let him go West again. He accepts provided Ragnar lets Knut go with him. Ragnar invites Lagherta to join his crew and lets Bjorn, Gyda and his farm under the command of Athelstan.

"Dispossessed" shows the evilness of Earl Haraldson and how smart Ragnar is. He learns how England is to prepare a next raid. The great surprise is his decision to let Lagherta go with him and putting Athelstan in charge of his family and farm. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Dispossessed"
