Spoiler alert! The Vikings is the best show on Netflix right now besides the Crown of course. The Vikings led by Ragnar Lothbrok sailed west for the first time and invaded England. Ragnar and his team of Vikings attacked a small village and monastery, capturing monks to be sold as slaves and treasures for his Earl. One of the monks he captured was Athelstan. He used Athelstan for his knowledge of England and also to teach him the language. His knowledge was more valuable than any treasure he plundered and saved Athelstan from slavery or death at the hands of another Viking. Athelstan was a man of God and slowly drifted and wavered in his faith and began believing the Gods of the pagans, Gods that included Thor and Loki. Athelstan became a trusted friend and loyal advisor to Ragnar. Athelstan is a great costume idea for people who are going to dress up as Vikings as a group. You definitely need a monk there.
