i guess the core of the joke is that compared to ancient romans the modern day italians are monkeys and don't have anything in common with them

Problem is there are a lot of contradicting sources (like most things historical) and the pagan peoples were rarely united. While some certainly converted to Christianity quickly (especially those who travelled to Constantinople), there is evidence to suggest that some others raided frequently for the simple reason that Christians would not trade with them.

But yeah, if you're into vikings etc, go ahead and watch it. It's not that bad, it's just... awkward.

Not necessarily in 793 AD. That's considered the starting date of the 'Viking Age', and the year in which the first part of the show takes place. I'm aware that many northmen embraced Christianity, but it's nonetheless a bit inappropriate to glorify Christianity and the people and villages of Britain to such an extent when it's nowhere near the truth of how it was.

That's the impression I got from the show, anyway; despite King Aella pretty much being the antagonist, it's suggested several times that he and his followers are morally superior to the encroaching vikings. Yes, vikings were often merciless raiders with no respect for other cultures or beliefs, but they were not the filthy, bloodthirsty barbarians and brutes that fiction would have people believe - and the people of King Aella were not saints and masters of sophistication.

Maybe? I haven't actually seen the show tbh, I'm talking more generally about the misconceptions of Christianity vs "Paganism" as interpreted through popular culture, or 'net culture really.

Maybe I should watch it but most people keep saying its bad, so...
