The episode explains that both the Vikings and the Celts lacked a central government which led to their eventual downfall. It attests, however, to the strength of their warrior societies and the extent of their influence, even to Rome and the Gallic Wars. A section on the Druids lays the basis for an understanding of magic and wizardry as portrayed in English literature. The exploits of Viking explorers are summarized as are the Viking beliefs in the afterlife and the final great battle between Thor and the powers of darkness.
