Steven Ashby / Pogovor

Ali priljubljenost Vikingov preprosto izvira iz romantike mitologije in pustolovščine ali je v igri kaj bolj zanimivega?

Vikingi imajo v ljudski in akademski zavesti trajno privlačnost. Pripoved, ki jih obdaja, je vedno vezana na zelo utrujeno razpravo o tem, ali so bili Vikingi napadalci ali trgovci. Toda ta dihotomija raider-trgovec je v veliki meri počivala v akademskih krogih.

Zato se mi zdi veliko bolj zanimivo razmisliti, kako in v kakšnih razmerah je nastala ta vrsta »vikinških« likov, da bi spremljali, kako se je naš pogled na Vikinge spremenil. Naš interes nikoli ni bil politično nevtralen. In zato preučevanje tega obdobja nosi odgovornost za pisanje o vikinški dobi, ki ni le arheološko in zgodovinsko natančna, ampak tudi družbeno odgovorna.

Akademsko zanimanje za "Vikinge" sega vsaj v 18. stoletje, medtem ko je bilo v 19. stoletju vključevanje "vikinške" umetnosti in kulture v romantično gibanje. V Skandinaviji je bilo to povezano s patriotizmom in se je pokazalo v naletu arheoloških izkopavanj. V Veliki Britaniji so Vikingi tvorili ključno sestavino romantizacije severa. Njihov vzrok so prevzeli misleci, kot so Collingwood, Ruskin, Morris in Scott. Nato so si v Nemčiji fenomen Vikinga prisvojili v nacionalistično pripoved, nenazadnje prek Wagnerja, kasneje pa z vključitvijo v Hitlerjev arijski paket. V tridesetih letih prejšnjega stoletja so se zbrali nekateri ključni spomeniki, drugi pa izkopali.

  • Ostri rob vikinške sekire - izrežite za več kot eno delo
  • Vikingi na Irskem: Nedavna odkritja, ki osvetljujejo strašne bojevnike, ki so vdrli na irske obale
  • Vikingi na Irskem: sledi bojevnikov, ki niso zakopani samo pod zemljo, so v DNK

Pri vsem tem je bila ključna sestavina romantika raziskovanja, osvajanja, kopnega. Tako je njihova obsedenost Vikingov zadela imperializem.

Toda to branje Vikingov ni lastno virom, druge interpretacije pa so nam na voljo. Dejansko so v sedemdesetih in osemdesetih letih 20. stoletja v Veliki Britaniji Vikingi ponovno odkrili skandinavske naseljence: ne več napadalcev in najemnikov; zdaj kmetje in ribiči, trgovci in podjetniki.

Večina dokazov o trgovini z Vikingi je nastala pri mestnih izkopavanjih v poznih sedemdesetih in osemdesetih letih. Tacheritski merkantilizem ima verjetno vpliv na to spremembo pristopa, nenazadnje tudi glede na dejstvo, da so bili številni dokazi pridobljeni s komercialnimi izkopavanji v urbanih okoljih. Na ta način so mesta postala osrednja v mnogih (nemarksističnih) pripovedih o vikinški dobi.

To preoblikovanje Vikingov v poslovneže prvega tisočletja je še vedno pogosta v priljubljenih medijih .

Obstajajo tudi kasnejši vikinški dogodki, ki izhajajo iz novejše zgodovine. V devetdesetih letih je konflikt v srednji Evropi in Afriki zahteval od arheologov, da ponovno razmislijo o etnični pripadnosti. Eden od rezultatov je bil bolj niansiran razmislek o "nordijski" identiteti. Peter Sawyer je že predlagal da je bilo število selitvenih Skandinavcev precenjeno. To se je zdaj dobro ujemalo z idejo, da predmetov v slogu "viking" ni treba povezovati s posamezniki nordijske dediščine.

Obdobje se še naprej obravnava kot lonček Evrope 21. stoletja, kontekst za nastanek skandinavskih nacionalnih držav. Toda pred kratkim širšo perspektivo je bilo predstavljeno: Vikingi kot ena od številnih sodobnih skupin pionirjev pomorstva; arhitekti omrežij, ki so skupaj zajela ves svet. V takem modelu naši Vikingi niso niti berserkerji niti protokapitalisti; so resnični ljudje.

  • Raziskava kaže, da si polovica Britancev želi, da bi bili poreklo od Vikingov ... in mnogi verjetno tudi!
  • Neusmiljeno dojemanje Vikingov se vrača kot dokaz uporabe sužnjev v vikinški dobi spet spet v središču pozornosti

Lewisovi šahisti. (Vir: Pogovor)

Dejansko je bila vikinška doba tako militariziran kot gospodarski svet. To je bil svet vidne potrošnje, pa tudi ustrahovanja, izkoriščanja in oportunizma. Lahko si zamislimo nekaj podobnega scenariju »neuspešne države« balkanskega konflikta ali vojskovodstvo 90 -ih v Ruandi in Kongu. Te analogije so nenatančne, vendar služijo kot protiutež naši fetišizaciji vikinškega glamura in uničenja.

Zbiranje, zbiranje, razstavljanje in distribucija prenosnega bogastva je bilo osrednjega pomena za družbo in gospodarstvo vikinške dobe. Ti vojaški poveljniki so nosili dovršena obleka z opaznimi osebnimi okraski in spremembami telesa ter se ukvarja z osebnim negovanjem. Zato jih morda bolje vidijo kot dobro ohranjene dandieje kot kot neurejene, hiruzirane barbare. Še en obrat kaleidoskopa in tukaj so sodobni Vikingi, odsevi naše potrošniške družbe.

Zato ni presenetljivo (in pravilno), da se danes osredotočamo na materialno kulturo bogastva in statusa, vendar mora biti naše razumevanje takšnih pojavov utemeljeno v ustreznem družbenem kontekstu. Če se vedno znova vračamo k tem skoraj mitskim velikanom, bi to morali vedeti, da to počnemo, ker v njih vidimo koščke sebe. Zato bi morali videti nekatere svoje pomanjkljivosti v njihovih: blaginja vedno temelji na stiskah drugih.

Vsaka bojna ladja, vsaka srebrna zaloga mora odmevati z neenakostjo, ki je zaznamovala preteklo družbo. Takšne pripovedi bodo nedvomno jasne na razstavi Britanskega muzeja in od ljudskega tiska ne bi smeli zahtevati nič manj. Imamo odgovornost, da se osredotočimo na bogastvo in moč, da prikažemo arhitekturo izkoriščanja in prisile, ki ju je podpirala.


Netflix ’s ‘ Vikingi: Valhalla ’ Sezona 1: Vse, kar do sedaj vemo

Vikingi: Valhalla je popolnoma nov podpis zgodovinskega kanala in podpis#8217 Vikingi serije. Netflix Original bo globalno prišel nekoč leta 2021 in prvič smo si ga ogledali med dogodkom Netflix Geeked Week! Tukaj je vse, kar vemo Vikingi: Valhalla kmalu na Netflixu.

Vikingi: Valhalla je prihajajoča Netflix Original zgodovinska drama, ki jo je ustvaril Michael Hirst in je izšla iz priljubljene serije History Channel, Vikingi. Serijo bo tako kot njen predhodnik produciral MGM Productions.

Hirst je predstavil svoje misli o tem, ali se bo nova serija ujemala Vikingi in obsega in obsega ter malo predstavila, kako se svet spreminja v prequel:

“Ni mogel ’t biti v večjem obsegu kot moje zadnje epizode Vikingi. Ker vojske in velike bitke, ki smo jih imeli, v resnici ne morete postati veliko večji od tega. Kaj pa naj rečem? Proizvaja se na istih mestih, veliko. Vrnemo se v Kattegat. To je seveda duhovni dom Vikingov. Toda to je spremenjeni Kattegat. To je uveljavljeno in eno največjih pristanišč v Evropi, trgovskih pristanišč v Evropi. Velikost in pomen je zrasel. Angleški kralj je postal Viking. Vikingi so zasedli večino Anglije in imajo v lasti Normandijo. ”

Jeb Stuart bo pisal, kdo je najbolj znan po svojem delu na področju filmov Begunec od leta 1993, Umri trdo od leta 1988 in se na njem tudi dela Osvoboditelj za Netflix.

Prvi pogled na Vikingi: Valhalla je bil izdan v okviru Netflixovega tedna geekedov 7. junija 2021.

Potrpežljivo ste čakali in čakanja je konec!

Kakšen je zaplet Vikingi: Valhalla?

Dogaja se več kot 100 let po dogodkih v Vikingi, konec vikinške dobe se vse bolj približuje, ko se Angleško kraljestvo upira svojim skandinavskim napadalcem. Po smrti kralja Edwarda Spovednika se trije gospodarji uveljavljajo na angleškem prestolu in za vedno spremenijo prihodnost Anglije.

Hirst je v nedavnem intervjuju komentiral, kako Valhalla bo povezan z izvirnikom Vikingi oddaje, ki potrjuje, da bomo z nje videli veliko istih lokacij:

»Kaj Jeb [Stuart] dejansko počne, je pozoren na mitologijo Vikingov. Zato se vedno, ko se srečata v veliki dvorani v Kattegatu, seveda pogovarjata o velikih obdobjih, ki so nekoč sedela v isti dvorani za isto mizo, in to so bili Ragnar Lothbrok, Lagertha in Bjorn Ironside ter Ivar brez kosti, ki so zdaj mitski liki tudi znotraj predstave, tudi znotraj Vikingi: Valhalla. To je res odlična povezava in učinek. Novi oddaji daje že pripravljene zgodovine. Zato vam za ogled nove oddaje ni treba vedeti, kdo je Ragnar. Ampak obogati predstavo in upajmo, da se bodo ljudje vrnili nazaj in ugotovili, ‘ No, kdo so ti ljudje, o katerih nenehno govorijo? Je bil Ragnar tako odličen? Zakaj so ti ljudje mitski liki? ’ Tako se vse poveže na koristen, zanimiv in fascinanten način. "

Uradna stran Netflix je bila posodobljena s povzetkom, ki je naslednji:

Kdo je vključen Vikingi: Valhalla in koga igrajo?

Zgoraj levo proti desni spodaj: Sam Corlett, Frida Gustavsson, Leo Suter, Bradley Freegard, Johannes Johannesson, Laura Berlin, David Oakes, Caroline Henderson, Pollyanna McIntosh, Asbjorn Krogh Nissen

Januarja 2021 je Deadline razkril deset glavnih in ponavljajočih se igralcev Vikingi: Valhalla skupaj z opisi njihovih vlog:

Sam Corlett (Srhljive pustolovščine Sabrine) bo igral Leifa Erikssona, Greenlanderja, vzgojenega na obrobju znanega sveta. Izhaja iz tesno povezane družine, prežete s starimi poganskimi prepričanji. Neustrašen mornar in fizično trd, Leif je naš vstop v svet Vikingov med mukami nasilnih sprememb.

Frida Gustavsson (Čarovnik) je Freydis Eriksdotter, ki je hudo pogan, ognjen in svojeglav. Je trdna vernica v "stare bogove". Tako kot njen brat Leif tudi ona pride do Kattegata kot zunanja oseba, vendar postane navdih tistim starih načinov. Če se spomnite, je bila Frida ena od igralcev, ki smo jih razkrili prej.

Leo Suter (Osvoboditelj) bo igral Haralda Sigurdssona. Harald, rojen v vikinškem plemstvu, je eden zadnjih vikinških berserkov. Karizmatičen, ambiciozen in čeden, je sposoben združiti tako privržence Odina kot kristjane.

Bradley Freegard (Ohranjanje vere) igra King Canute. Danski kralj. Moder, pameten in neusmiljen voditelj Vikingov. Prijatelje drži blizu, sovražnike pa bližje. Njegove ambicije bodo oblikovale potek zgodovine v 11. stoletju in ga postavile kot odločilno osebnost vikinške dobe.

Johannes Haukur Jóhannesson (Preklet) upodablja Olafa Haraldsona. Olaf je Haraldov starejši polbrat. Je fizično velik in ambiciozen, je strog in neusmiljen Viking. Olaf je "starozavezni" kristjan.

Laura Berlin (Breaking Even) igra Emmo iz Normandije. Mlada, ambiciozna Emma iz Normandije je z normanskega dvora in vikinške krvi. Politično bistra in ena najbogatejših žensk v Evropi. Najverjetneje je potomec Rolla iz izvirnika Vikingi serije.

David Oakes (Borgije) je Earl Godwin. Končni preživeli. Glavni svetovalec angleškega kralja. Rojen na političnem robu, njegove zvite poti ga pripeljejo daleč. David je bil še eden izmed številnih igralcev, ki smo jih razkrili v zadnjih nekaj mesecih.

Caroline Henderson (Božična zvezda) bo igral Jarla Haakona. Odličen bojevnik in strpni vodja, Haakon z mirno roko vlada Kattegatu. Čeprav je bila poganka, ji je uspelo ohraniti mesto Kattegat odprto za vse vere v izzivnem času. Postala bo močan mentor Freydis, ki jo privlači njena modrost.

Pollyanna McIntosh (The Walking Dead) se ponavlja kot kraljica Ælfgifu. Računalniška in ambiciozna, danska kraljica Ælfgifu ima vlogo v političnih bojih za moč, ki se odvijajo v severni Evropi. Svoj šarm in zvijačo odlično izkorišča, ko promovira interese svoje domovine Mercian in se poskuša uveljaviti v naraščajoči strukturi moči Canute.

Asbjorn Krogh Nissen (Bron) je Jarl Kåre, ki grozi starim poganskim načinom.

Bo kdo iz izvirnika Vikingi se pojavi v novi seriji?

Ja, in prvi in ​​najbolj opazen igralec iz Vikingi ki se bo pojavil v Valhalla je John Kavanagh, kar potrjuje njegov življenjepis agencije. Upodobil je starodavnega vidca v vseh šestih letnih časih Vikingi in kasneje so se začeli pojavljati v nekaterih likih ’ vizijah. Predvidevamo, da se bo pojavil v vizijah v Valhalla tudi.

John Kavanagh kot Vidac

Drugi igralci iz Vikingi ki se bo pojavil v Valhalla med njimi Karen Connell, Bosco Hogan in Gavan O ’Connor Duffy. Connell se je pojavil v Vikingi kot Angel smrti, zato domnevamo, da bo imela isto vlogo, Hogan in Duffy pa bosta imela popolnoma nove vloge. Pri Vikingih so nastopili kot opat Lindisfarne in kralj Frodo.

S kom se še ukvarja Vikingi: Valhalla?

Poleg igralske zasedbe poznamo še nekaj drugih članov posadke, ki delajo na predstavi:

  • Steve Saint Leger je trenutno vezana na režijo treh epizod prve sezone. On ’s ni samo režiral številnih epizod v glavni Vikingi seriji, vendar naj bi režiral tudi v Netflixovih Barbarih#8217s, ki prihajajo konec leta 2020.
  • Niels Arden Oplev, danski režiser, nagrajen z BAFTA, ki je vodil epizode za takšne serije, kot je Gospod Robot in Pod kupolo je tudi nastavljen za režijo ene ali več epizod za prvo sezono Valhalla.
  • Hannah Quinn je bil tudi potrjen kot režiser prve sezone Vikingi: Valhalla. Njena najnovejša dela vključujejo Usoda: Winx saga in Tujec, oba na Netflixu.

  • Trevor Morris ki večino šeste sezone služi kot skladatelj Vikingi se bo vrnil za Valhalla. Njegove druge zasluge vključujejo Tudorji in Hunter Killer.

Kakšen je status proizvodnje Vikingi: Valhalla?

Uradno stanje proizvodnje: Premor (zadnja posodobitev: 28/11/2020)

Predprodukcija za Vikingi: Valhalla se je začelo v začetku tega leta, vendar je bilo ustavljeno zaradi pandemije COVID-19. Na srečo so jo nadaljevali julija 2020 in zdaj lahko potrdimo, da so se snemanja začela v Ashford Studios na Irskem od avgusta 2020. Ne vemo natančno, kako dolgo bo snemanje trajalo, vendar je bilo prvotno načrtovano, da bo trajalo od marca do oktobra 2020.

Po drugi strani pa slišimo, da je druga sezona Vikingi: Valhalla je že v razvoju. Glede na to, da je prejšnji Vikingi sezone so bile posnete z ne prav velikimi intervali, smo lahko pričakovali Vikingi: Valhalla druga sezona, ki bo začela s proizvodnjo nekje v drugi polovici leta 2021 za morebitno izid konec leta 2022 ali v začetku leta 2023.

Septembra 2020 smo dobili še nekaj fotografij s seta. Spodaj si lahko ogledate galerijo fotografij iz prvih tednov snemanja v Ashford Studios. Kot lahko vidite, je očitno Kattegat. Mnoge slike je avtorja Broadsheet ‘s Harryja Warrena.

8. oktobra 2020 je The Irish Times poročal, da snema za Vikingi: Valhalla je bil ta teden prekinjen, potem ko je ducat zasedb in članov posadke pozitivno na Covid. Kasneje ta teden se je proizvodnja nadaljevala, potem ko je bilo ugotovljeno, da gre le za lažno pozitivne rezultate, igralci in člani posadke pa so v redu. Prekinitev proizvodnje je trajala le nekaj dni in Vikingi so se vrnili k svojemu poslu.

Konec novembra 2020 so igralci in posadka začeli objavljati posodobitve o embalažni produkciji Vikingi: Valhalla po snemanju štiri mesece. Ni znano, koliko materiala so posneli in ali je to pravi zavoj prve sezone ali božični/covid premor do začetka leta 2021.

Marca 2021 je BreakingNews.ie poročal o snemanju filma Vikingi: Valhalla je bil ustavljen za dva meseca. Prekinjeno je tudi oddajanje dodatkov in igralcev. Natančni razlogi za to niso znani, verjetno pa zaradi strogih meril za zapiranje.

Kje bo Vikingi: Valhalla biti posnet?

Kot smo že omenili, se je predproizvodnja že začela in lokacija je zelo drago in znano mesto Vikingi oboževalci: Ashford Studios, Wicklow, Irska. To je kraj, kjer je večina izvirnika Vikingi serijo so snemali več let. Če dodamo k temu, leta 2019, po snemanju zadnje sezone Vikingi Ashford Studios je dobil dovoljenje za širitev v višini 90 milijonov evrov, kar jim je omogočilo gradnjo petih novih studiev in podporni prostor. To se bo verjetno odrazilo na kakovosti proizvodnje Vikingi: Valhalla.

Glavno proizvodno vozlišče je enako za Valhalla, lahko pričakujemo, da bomo videli številne znane zunanje irske lokacije, ki so tik v bližini. Pričakujemo lahko tudi veliko iste ekipe, ki dela na Vikingi spinoff.

Koliko epizod bo Vikingi: Valhalla zrak?

Potrjeno je bilo, da je 24 epizod Vikingi: Valhalla do sedaj naročeno. To je veliko epizod, za katere se Netflix zaveže, da bo upošteval tipičen znesek od osem do trinajst.

Zahvale gredo Vikingi že na urniku, ki sezone razdeli na polovico, pričakujemo prvo sezono leta Vikingi: Valhalla storiti enako. To pomeni, da bi bilo za dvanajst epizod Vikingi: Valhalla prva sezona.

Bo original Vikingi prihajajo serije na Netflix?

Za razliko Lucifer in Imenovani preživeli, Vikingi: Valhalla ni nadaljevanje Vikingi in je namesto tega spin-off. To je pomembno, ker je prej Netflix US sčasoma pobral vse letne čase iz preklicanih oddaj v omrežju.

Vikingi je trenutno na voljo na Hulu in Amazon v ZDA, vendar je posel za Vikingi: Valhalla verjetno ne bo vključeval Netflixa, ki bo prejel vseh šest sezon Vikingi. Še posebej zdaj, ko je MGM kupil Amazon, sumimo, da bodo pravice vračane izključno Amazon Prime.

Dobrodošli v razširjenem vesolju Michael Qing

Glede na to, kar sem se že naučil o kulturah Vikingov in norveški mitologiji na splošno, sem prepričan, da eden od mojih dolgoletnih prijateljev trenerjev to razume bolj kot sem pričakoval. Ta oseba, za katero sem nekoč vedel, da je v njeni čisti krvi, je dejansko živela na Danskem in#8211 Švedske v nordijski regiji. Pravzaprav sta danska ali celo švedska plavalna ekipa dobra, saj jim je pomagal pri trenerju.

Pisateljica zgodovinarke znanosti Heather Pringle je avtorica treh knjig, med njimi V iskanju stare Severne Amerike, njene naloge pa pogosto vodijo v nepozabna srečanja z živimi in mrtvimi skandinavskih zgodovinskih dogodkov.

Ljudje v Skandinaviji so močni, brutalni in neustrašni, saj imajo tisti naravni instinkt, da so najmočnejši v glavah, ki si prizadevajo vdreti še dolgo preden je Adolf Hitler razvil nacistično vlado in še pred razcvetom zgodovine druge svetovne vojne. Vikinške kulture je oblikovala edinstvena geografija Skandinavije. Čeprav se vsi Skandinavci niso odločili za življenje napadalca, so pomanjkanje obdelovalnih površin in želja po bogastvu v tujini mnoge odgnali v morja.

Nova vizija Vikingov je po podatkih raziskovalne fundacije National Geography naletela na več kot 50 kultur od Afganistana do Kanade. Vikinški in slovanski obnavljalci, ki se ščetkajo s sulicami in meči, se soočijo v lažni bitki med festivalom v Wolinu na Poljskem. Kar se je začelo kot majhne napadalne skupine v vikinški dobi, je preraslo v vojske, ki so v 11. stoletju osvojile velika območja Evrope. V 11. stoletju je bila Vikingi in njihovi osvajalci po vsej deželi Evrope zlata doba. Hitri in smrtonosni so Vikingi prevladovali v morjih severne Evrope od konca 18. stoletja do 11. stoletja. Njihove ladje in tehnološki podvigi, ki so jih uporabljali za raziskovanje, trgovino, vojskovanje in celo pokope, so bili sestavni del življenja grozljivih napadalcev. Najprej so napadle majhne skupine, v poznejši vikinški dobi pa bi lahko v starih časih naše človeške zgodovine štelo 250 ladij ali več.

Svetlolasi, skandinavski bojevniki, ki so ropali po demografski populaciji sodobne Evrope, saj je po vsem svetu več kot 20 do 30 milijonov ljudi. Izkazalo se je, da večina Vikingov ni bila tako svetlolasi in modrooki vampir, saj so legende in popularna kultura ljudi prepričali, da je Hitler pred vodstvom nacistične Nemčije ostal neznan, saj je po novi študiji o DNK več kot 400 Vikingov neznana Vikingi so imeli nekaj temnih las in temnih oči iz značilne avtohtone manjšine. Pravzaprav gre za odlično genetsko mešanico, ki kaže, da v danem trenutku ni bila posebna etnična skupina, temveč mešanica različnih skupin, “ s predniki iz lovcev, nabiralcev, kmetov in prebivalcev iz evrazijske stepe. &# 8221 Študija je pokazala, katere skandinavske države so najbolj vplivale na zunanje regije. Danski Vikingi so odšli v Anglijo, švedski Vikingi pa na Baltik, norveški Vikingi pa na Irsko, Islandijo, Vinlandijo in Grenlandijo,#8221 po podatkih univerze v Københavnu & Ashot Margaryan. Tri posebno genetsko raznolika območja, eno na sodobnem Danskem in eno na švedskih otokih Gotland in Oland —, so bili verjetno ključna trgovska središča. Mislili smo, da o Vikingih vemo vse. Toda nekatere nove raziskave kažejo, da smo se zmotili. V največji tovrstni študiji, ki je bila objavljena v reviji Nature Wednesday, so raziskovalci ugotovili, da so mnogi Vikingi v resnici imeli rjave lase globoko v globinah iz pravic raziskovanja črnih trgov v srednjeveški zgodovini, kjer ni nobene oblike vlad ali mednarodnih organizacij. In niso bili samo iz Skandinavije. Zaključki te genetske analize kažejo, da je bila ideja, da bi bil Viking, bolj način življenja ali službe.

Spoznavanje Ragnoraka je bilo pomemben dejavnik, kar sem lahko razumel, da bi prenesel sporočilo, da zgodovina naredi vse bolj merodajno za dobrobit naše tradicije. Temna nordijska legenda o Ragnoraku, konec stvarstva in zadnja bitka, v kateri umrejo vsi bogovi, vsa nadnaravna bitja ter vsi ljudje in druga živa bitja. Ragnorak naj bi se začel s Fimbulwinterjem, smrtonosnim časom, ko sonce obarva črno in vreme postane grenko in zahrbtno — dogodki, ki so srhljivo vzporedni s tančico prahu, ki se je začela leta 536. Vikinški bojevniki so se za bogastvo in ugled borili z meči odkrita v Gnezdovu v Rusiji. Bojevniki so pogosto plenili plen na koščke plemenite kovine, ki bi jih lahko uporabljali kot valuto za nakupe. Toda nekateri vikinški bojevniki so dragocenosti, ki so jih ukradli, cenili zaradi svoje lepote in želenih statusnih simbolov. Te anglosaksonske broške in zlati ptičji čep je v zakladki odkril bogati Viking na Škotskem. Vikingi so živeli do svojega nasilnega ugleda: skandinavski moški so bili že od malih nog usposobljeni za bitke in družbeno pogojeni za prelivanje krvi. Ti občutljivi obeski, ki jih je izdelal usposobljen zlatar na švedskem otoku Gotland, so bili zasnovani za bogate ženske. Vikingi so nosili predvsem srebro in zlati kosi bi bili redki in dragoceni.

Kljub temu, da so moški že tisoče let v številnih bitkah izčrpali svetovno populacijo, je več žensk, ki imajo informacijsko lastnost te blond pričeske z vsega sveta, ki bolje sporočajo sporočilo kot moški. Porazdelitev norveških moških globoko v preteklost, ki so blond ali svetli lasje, ima enako količino kot v naši današnji sodobni družbi. V globoki preteklosti Skandinavije je večina moških zaradi tradicije želela pustiti brado ali brke. Mlade skandinavske ženske so še vedno privlačne v sodobnem času ali v starodavni zgodovini naše preteklosti. Norveški ljudje v preteklosti so prihajali iz istega prednika kromagnonskih človeških fosilnih kosti. V zadnjih letih, v sodobni dobi norveških kultur brez nasprotujočih si mednarodnih zadev med prevlado nadvlade interesov, je prišlo do pomembnih tehnoloških inovacij in vse večje industrializacije, Skandinavci pa zdaj uživajo nekatere najvišje standarde žive demografske kulture v evropskih demokracijah.

Kar poznam in razumem o kulturi Vikingov, je film Bog groma “Thor ”, ki ga je ustvarila Marvelova zabava, ki daje malo vpogleda in pomanjkanja namena, da bi se tega pravilno naučil. Norveška vlada ima dober občutek za nacionalno identiteto, varnost in občutek socialne uravnoteženosti kot drugi ljudje, ki so na podeželju neurejeni pastirji. Hvala naše norveške obveščevalne službe ali Etterretningstjenesten je norveška vojaška obveščevalna agencija pod vodstvom obrambnega ministrstva in obrambnega ministrstva na Norveškem, ker smo cenjeni. Obstaja veliko pogumnih voditeljev, med katerimi trenutno prevladujejo ženske, ki lahko delajo na vojaških silah po vsem svetu.


Vikingi, sezona 4, epizoda 12, pregled: Vizija

Ragnar odpluje, Lagertha pa grozi Aslaugu v 12. epizodi 4. sezone Vikingov.

To Vikingi pregled vsebuje spojlerje.

4. sezona Vikingov, 12. epizoda

Ko Ragnar pove Ivaru: "Pohiti, moramo ujeti plimo," to sporočilo njegovemu najmlajšemu sinu odraža velik del vzvišene pripovedi "The Vision", zadnje epizode Vikingi. Najbolje zastavljeni načrti se pogosto zmotijo ​​in Michael Hirst tako lepo opiše korenine niza dogodkov, namenjenih oblikovanju prihodnosti Kattegata in klana Lothbrok. Čeprav bi bilo lepo videti Rolla, če bi vsaj za trenutek omenili njegove politične uspehe, pa moramo le še počakati na morebitno spopad. Seveda ostaja vprašanje, kdo bo od Rolla zahteval, da se odreši svojega greha izdaje in kdo bo postal kralj.

Takoj, ko se bomo sredi premierne premiere razveselili Ragnarjeve vrnitve v Kattegat, smo zdaj polni usmiljenja do nekoč velikega človeka, ki je slovel v drobcih, prisiljen prositi moške, naj ga spremljajo na maščevalnem potovanju v Wessex. Težko je opazovati Ragnarja, ki se sprehaja po vasi, zdaj poln aktivnosti, vendar je to le eno od mnogih ponižanj, s katerimi se srečuje, ko preureja življenje. Ragnar zagotovo razume spremembe, ki so se zgodile v njegovi odsotnosti, vendar očitno ni več v svojem elementu in se v vasi, ki jo je nekoč pomagal zgraditi, počuti neprijetno. Srečanje z bratom kmeta, ki je umrl v Wessexu, krepi občutke ljudi do osramočenega kralja Ragnarja. Kako so padli mogočni.

Ko gledalec in Ivar opazujeta Ragnarja, kako izkopava skrite zaklade iz prejšnjih napadov, se njegovi nameni počasi osredotočajo. Ragnar razdeljuje kovance, plemenite kovine in druge dragocenosti v upanju, da bo moške privabil v njegovo posadko, vendar se postavijo le stari in nemočni, kar nas sprašuje, ali se strinjajo, da bodo jadrali do smrti in bodo samo poskrbeli za svoje družine. Pravzaprav je to lahko tudi Ragnarjev motiv. In nekoliko ponižujoče je, da moraš od Bjorna zahtevati ladje, čeprav je njegova zasluga, da Bjorn preseneti svojega očeta, ko se zlahka strinja.

Vsebina oglasov – se nadaljuje spodaj

Tukaj moramo razmisliti o Ragnarju Lothbroku, ki ga vidimo pred seboj, ker ni več podoben kralju bojevnikom, ki smo ga opazovali, kako zlobno napada in pleni oddaljene dežele, vse v imenu bogov. Življenje mu je zadalo nekaj brutalnih udarcev, in čeprav je trajalo sedem let, da se je sprijaznil z odločitvami, ki jih je sprejel, ni pripravljen sprejeti le posledic, ampak tudi sprejeti končno stališče. Kaj resnično upa doseči z napadom na Anglijo, ostaja znano le njemu.

Pravijo, da je eden od načinov presojanja moškega, da preuči sinove, ki jih vzgaja, in čeprav je mogoče trditi, da so njegove dolge odsotnosti to vlogo prepustile drugim, nihče ne more zanikati, da je Bjorn Ironside sam po sebi postal dober človek . Ganljiv prizor med Bjornom in Ragnarjem, ko se pogovarjata o Bjornovih načrtih, osvetljuje neločljivo vez med njima, a njegov predlog, da vzpostavi stik z Rollom, ki očitno širi svoje kraljestvo, naleti na pričakovano reakcijo. Ragnar v pogovoru ne vidi smisla, Bjorn pa zavzema bolj odkrito stališče in trdi, da diplomacija koristi vsem. Kljub temu pa skozi to sceno teče priznanje naravnega razvoja življenja, saj starš zdaj potrebuje otroka, da zanj skrbi v poznejših letih.

Kljub temu Bjornov odnos z očetom označuje le vrh ledene gore, ki naj bi trčil v klan Lothbrok, ko smo priča, da se druga Ragnarjeva družina med večerjo razpada. Sigurd se še naprej posmehuje Ivaru, tako daleč, da pravi, da bi ga morala njihova mama prepustiti volkom. Boleče je gledati, kako se Ivar čustveno in fizično bori, da bi se soočil s Sigurdom, in na koncu zleze proti vratom, ko Sigurd odide. Zanimivo je, da se njegovo dobesedno in Ragnarjevo figurativno plazenje ponavlja.

Očitno konec zlovešče epizode pomeni, da niti Ivar niti Ragnar ne bosta preživela do konca potovanja. Ragnar je star, Ivar pa hrom, vendar čutimo, da imata oba bogove za sabo kljub Ragnarjevi stalni krizi vere. Ali bo ob predpostavki, da se Ivar vrne v Kattegat, Sigurd, ki varno ostane doma z mamo, svojega najmlajšega brata potisnil na rob, pri čemer Ivar ne bo imel druge izbire, kot da ubije svojega brata? Kontrast med bratoma ne bi mogel biti izrazitejši, SIgurdov odnos pa je težko razložiti. Vsekakor se zdi dovolj jezen in ko Aslaug fantom pove, da si morajo najti žene, da ljubezen ni pomembna, se Sigurd celo posmehuje materi in zahteva, da ve, ali je kdaj ljubila koga drugega kot Harbarda.

Z mešanimi občutki opazujemo, kako kralj Harald in njegov brat Halfdan odplujejo v pristanišče, da se pridružijo Bjornu na njegovem raziskovalnem potovanju, ker poznamo Haraldove dolgoletne ambicije. V prizoru, napolnjenem z resnimi podtoni, Ragnar opazuje flotilo z bližnjega pobočja, medtem ko Bjorn in njegova družina čakajo na zatožni klopi, praznovanje tiste noči, da bi Bjorna in njegove bojevnike odpravili, pa omogoča razvoj več podplatov. Does Ragnar fear his son will be manipulated or worse by Harald?

Ad – content continues below

It’s unclear why Bjorn seems somewhat surprised when his mother and Astrid arrive, but she wants to see her son off on his destiny even though we suspect there might be more to her attendance than immediately meets the eye. We learn that Harald has been conquering area kings on his quest to rule all of Norway, and the fact that Bjorn appears unconcerned about that seems puzzling. The intrigue within the walls of the hall permeates every inch of the room, and it’s comforting to know that our confidence in Bjorn is well founded. Bjorn seems wary of Floki’s warm greeting of Harald and Halfdan, so that relationship is one to keep an eye on even though it seems impossible to believe Floki would ever consciously betray Bjorn.

I’m not sure there’s any scene that fans of Vikings have longed for more than the confrontation between Lagertha and Aslaug. The celebration delivers the perfect opportunity, and we don’t have to wait long to see who makes the first move. On the one hand, it’s disappointing that Lagertha doesn’t take the initiative, but when she suggests they officiate a sacrifice together since Aslaug’s son Hvitserk is going with Bjorn, she seizes the upper hand.

“You forget, Lagertha, that I am the queen,” Aslaug tells her, clearly forgetting with whom she’s conversing. “I never forget anything,” Lagertha tells her and walks away. The scene is pregnant with with intrigue as Bjorn doesn’t trust Harald, and Aslaug knows that Lagertha’s intentions are at best unclear.

The sacrificial ceremony intended to send Bjorn off with the gods’ blessings reminds viewers of the religious mysticism surrounding the Norsemen. The incessant beat of the drums produces a trancelike state as we watch Aslaug, face completely covered in blood and paint, sacrifice the animal drawing its blood into a bowl. Clearly, she takes control leaving Lagertha among the crowd. Using what appears to be a sort of aspergillum, she sprays the blood on the others as a form of consecration, but that’s only the beginning.

Caught up in the religious fervor, Ivar paints his face with blood and then not that shockingly drinks from the bowl. Is this an attempt vitalize himself, perhaps praying for a miracle from above? And then in the midst of this Viking rave, Lagertha approaches Aslaug and tells her she knows she can hear her despite her hypnotic state, lets her know she’ll never forgive her for stealing her husband and world, and that Aslaug will never be queen of Kattegat. It has to grate Lagertha on so many levels to look around at the fruit of Aslaug’s power leading her to her final admonishing words. “Look what you’ve done with it.” I think we all know a showdown is coming if only Aslaug will cooperate.

It was beginning to appear that Ragnar would delay facing his wife Aslaug for as long as possible, and it’s not until Ivar tells his mother that he plans to accompany his father on the voyage to England that she’s reached the end of her patience. What comes next might be the most surprising gesture in the episode as Alyssa Sutherland gives one of her most powerfully emotional performances. Coming on the heels of her encounter with Lagertha and her participation in the sacrificial rites, this unexpected tender scene between husband and wife almost makes us feel sorry for her. We’re not sure where this is headed when Ragnar tells her that, “We both know that love was not what brought us together.” But then in the next breath, as he gently releases the braids of her hair, he gratefully acknowledges that she never poisoned the boys against him despite how terribly he treated her.


8 Timelines

Vikingi is a television series that plays with time in a much more interesting way than most, and if you tuned into the Season 4 finale then you already know. In Vikings, time passes. Characters get older, boys become men, men grow old, and so forth. This freedom with time has allowed Vikingi to become a more believable story than Game of Thrones. In Westeros, months could pass between each episode, yet this doesn't seem to translate on screen or in the characters motivations. V Vikingi, sometimes years pass between episodes and suddenly a young boy is will become a man. They replace the actor and that's it, they keep going. It's these constant changes that keep the makeup departments on their toes, keeping the costume and set looking creative and fresh from season to season.


What is the story with Athelstan?

I think he is one of the more interesting characters, is he Chritian or Pagan? We don't seem to really know where he lies. Maybe he doesn't either. And now the King is sharing his Roman goodies with him. Athelstan is suffering stigmata and seeing devils under his bed. But what does it mean? Is it the pagan gods telling him he is ok or to come back? Is it the Christian God telling him he is needed and important? What are your thoughts?

Well he spit out the body of christ so i'm pretty sure he's committed to the old gods now.

Er, if he were still a Christian, wouldn't he believe that it's a sin to take communion without confession? I saw that same act as meaning he je bil still Christian.

What I understood from that scene is that he sees no difference between the christian ritual and the norse ritual. He's still divided, but he doesn't believe in just one God now.

When I saw that, I literally punched the air and turned to my Vikings-watching-companion, who was clearly not as moved by that as I was. Up until that point, I just wanted a sign that he was still for the old gods. That moment felt pretty good.

I made a post here that addresses a lot of this I think, as well as a thorough look on his hallucinations in the most recent episode.

In my opinion, the long and short of it is guilt. The hallucinations began with the bleeding book that Floki gave him- the book from the monk he murdered, the man who was in the very same position as Athelstan seven years ago. Shortly thereafter, he was crucified, which was incredibly traumatic. This scene is very important because it not only deconstructed a large part of what Athelstan had grown to be and further established parallels between him and key biblical figures, but also because he was praying in Latin. Though he professes to worship Odin, in the moment of sure death, he cried out to his God.

From this, it's obvious that the conflict between deities is still there in his heart, and the stakes have been raised dramatically. I mentioned guilt being a driving force in his hallucinations, but ultimately. well, to put it frankly, the guy is snapping. I wouldn't be surprised if he had a very strong case of PTSD, given everything that's happened to him thusfar.

I've entertained the idea of his hallucinations actually being visions given to him by a deity- be it Odin or God- but the more I look at it, the more I think that it doesn't quite make enough sense and it sort of undermines the constant inner turmoil he's going through.

I'm planning on doing more of a thorough writeup of the visions he's had once the season is closer to an end- since I'm sure his bleeding stigmata in the last episode isn't the end of it.

Every year on the 4th of July I post photos from this shoot we did inspired by Assassin’s Creed III based in the American Revolutionary War. In a year of chaos and suffering we need these reminders more than ever before. First, that sometimes good values find themselves at odds. Justice and mercy, liberty and safety, love and honor, or truth and peace can all pit good people, fighting for a good cause against each other. Second is that for any cause that is really worth supporting, sacrifice will be required and blood, sweat and tears (not to mention being subjected to name calling, slander and bullying) is all too often the price of doing the right thing. Human history is the history of conflict. The “good” side does not always win. Sometimes there are no “good” sides, sometimes there are no “bad” sides. All we can do is our best in what whatever time we live and in whatever conflict we are drawn into. Ultimately your personal decisions not only define your battle, they define your life.

[SPOILERS] Vikings as a Myth

I just finished watching Season 3 of Vikings and can't wait to get going on season 4. Its one of my favorite dramas I've found this year, and a lot of that comes from the atmosphere of the scenes and characters. It feels like a myth. While many of the decisions the writers make may come to "it is a show that needs to be entertaining" I think the mythical feeling is very intentional and can address some of the criticisms people make.

Ragnar Lothbrok was probably a person, but history really isn't sure. If he existed, so did his wives, Lagertha and Aslaug. His sons existed, including Bjorn. Many of the other characters existed, such as King Horik, King Egbert, King Aelle, and Emporer Charles, but not much is known of them. Because of the mystery that shrouds this time period, the show allows itself quite a bit of leniency in how it crafts the characters and plots. The writers can make Ragnar to be a very inquisitive, eccentric, powerful, brooding leader and warrior because they are telling the legend of Ragnar Lothbrok in their own eyes. Its a modern telling of a Norse "myth".

Spiritualism

One of the biggest reasons I think the show mirrors a myth is the massive presence of religion not just as a talking point but a very real presence. Athelstan, Ragnar, and Floki all have visions of different types throughout the show, including seeing Odin or blood flowing. In Season 3, the women of Kattegat foresee the coming of a wanderer who is strongly hinted to be a God or related to them. The Seer of Kattegat is constantly making prophecies that so far have been true. Aslaug is also able to make prophecies that come true. The presence and affect that the Gods have on the Viking world relate it to the Norse Myths, where the Gods were characters who walked among their world and our own.

Another aspect of traditional myths, including Norse myths, is the relatively simplistic yet concise and important dialogue. I think this is reflected in the show, as much of the dialogue is straight to the point and quite simple. While many may critique the show for this, I think it adds to the effect. It is a retelling of a story that has been passed down many times, and other than the occasional eloquent speech, only the main points remain. This is also true for the plot, which often moves very quickly through episodes, focusing only on the most important events.

One of the critiques the show gets, especially in the siege on Paris is how the main characters seem unable to be killed or injured very often. Though almost every drama is a culprit of this, I think Vikings finds a good reason in myth. The main characters, Ragnar, Lagertha, Bjorn, Rollo, and others, are main characters in a myth. Bjorns name is Bjorn Ironside, clearly history and legend shines on him to be resilient. In crafting the characters, the show makes them more legendary, leaning on rumor and stories more than 100% historical accuracy.

Overall, I think that Vikings mirrors myth in many ways. History Channel has chosen to tell the story of a legendary character, and does so with grandiosity. Powerful characters, simplistic dialogue, and the constant presence of the Gods helps build the story and leads to some intense and powerful moments. Many of the innacuracies and critiques of the show can be defended by viewing the show in this light. In many ways, all of history is a myth with varying amounts of accuracy and retelling. Why not fully immerse ourselves in what the time of the Ragnar Lothbrok and the Vikings may have been?

With one episode left, when will Season 6 begin

Hated to see Judith die. She was hot !

I just wanted to add a corrcetion to this schedule, the next episode to air will be Season 5 episode 11, as it was with season 10, season 11 will have 20 episodes not 10 as is indicated above.

Ragnar had to die, to start the war between the Danes and English, The great Heathen Army can only be built when Ragnar dies as it is a great army built for the revenge of their farther. Without the great heathen army England would be split all over and they would not survive.

It was due to the Danes taking over that England finally became a unified England as the king of Wessex would not of dreamed of creating an England.

So please I completely agree with you that yes it is not good without Ragnar, however it is history, people would of started moaning that this was not historical enough and then it would of lost ratings anyway.

Bring Ragnar back.
Not interesting without him. That's why your ratings went down. I feel the same- killing off Ragnar really changes the dynamics of the show. Where he could be tough as nails, brutal and a little unhinged. he had a gentle side, which showed the true family unit of the Vikings. That missing now, sadly.
Try & find a way to bring Ragnar back, Ashe is needed.

I never intended to watch Vikings originally, but I kept seeing the premier being pushed on History Channel, so I thought, "Okay, why not?" Boy, talk about being blown away by that first episode! I agree with many of you, it's kind of difficult to want to watch it now without Ragnar. Some episodes were fantastic, in that the stories were so detailed but, then, the time jumps. they seemed out of place. (They could've waited for the next season to introduce Ragnar's grown sons, IMO.) The actors were perfectly chosen for their parts, with the exception of what's-her-name-something-Polanski, she's the only one who seems like the oddball for me.

Can't wait to start watching Season 5!


Vikings: Why did Ivar the Boneless kill Thora in Vikings?

Vikings is a popular historical drama series on History and Amazon Prime, and it follows the sons of the famous Ragnar Lothbrok (played by Travis Fimmel). In the series, Thora (Eve Connolly) is the lover of Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø), but she was killed in season 6 and fans are wondering what happened to her. She had been murdered at the hands of Hvitserk's brother, Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen), and her death haunted Hvitserk for a long time.

Trending

Thora was introduced in season five, speaking to Hvitserk about why he did not attend his brother's sacrificial ceremony.

Ivar had made threats to Thora, saying it would be a shame to see her burned alive. He later spots her in a crowd of onlookers who believed Ragnar had been a better leader than him.

Viewers were shocked to see Thora and her family punished, as Ivar had ordered for them to be put to death for turning against him.

She and her family are burned alive, and Thora has to watch as her father is set on fire, before facing the same terrible fate herself.

Ivar had seen a statue which had been dedicated to him had been vandalised, and he was frustrated at the fact not everyone believed in him.

Thora had told him Ragnar would have never forced his power on anyone, and initially Ivar does not seem to take much notice of her words.

However, he leaves a mark on her which indicates to his guards she must be put to death for going against the ruler.

Her death is one of the most horrendous in the series, and it sent Hvitserk on his downward spiral, suffering from post traumatic stress disorder.

Hvitserk continues to see visions of Thora with burnt skin and she taunts him over the fact his brother slaughtered her and her family.

The visions drive Hvitserk to madness and he starts drinking heavily and taking drugs to try and bury the thoughts.

However, his instability peaks when he ends up stabbing shieldmaiden Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) by mistake, thinking she was an evil serpent coming to kill him.

Fans were left heartbroken after seeing the way Thora's death has such an impact on Hvitserk and his mental health.

Povezani članki

One fan said on Twitter: "Ivar you evil b**, I honestly hope Hvitserk kills him for what he did to Thora #Vikings."

However, in a strange turn of events fans will know in season six Hvitserk and Ivar end up teaming up in order to launch an attack on their homeland.

Ivar had joined the Rus Vikings who wanted to invade Scandinavia, and he helped bring Hvitserk back to health so he could join in the fight.

Fans could not believe how quickly Hvitserk seemed to forgive Ivar for murdering his lover, and they are wondering whether his plan is a trick.

Another fan said on Twitter: "Hvitserk is just going to leave Thora there after his brother threatened to burn her? I mean, if there's ever a reason to make it a double occupancy room, Hvitsy, this is it."

PREBERI VEČ

Hvitserk may be trying to hide his resentment in order to get Ivar on his side, before launching at attack on him.

What Ivar did to Thora was unforgiveable, and fans will be expecting Hvitserk to take some sort of revenge on his brother.

Hvitserk did previously join his brother Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) in a fight to overthrow Ivar shortly after Thora's death.

However, all seems to be forgotten in the most recent series, which sees Thora in ghost form driving Hvitserk to insanity.

In Viking mythology, Thora is actually a wife of Ragnar, however, in the series she is in love with Ragnar's son.

Vikings will return to History and Amazon Prime at the end of 2020
