Patricia Bracewell, a writer of historical fiction, is doing a historical accompaniment to the show, episode by episode. It's especially interesting as regards the English interactions and connections with the Danes, Swedes, Normans, and Norwegians:


There's more historical action and detail than I expected tbh. Of course, it's scattered across decades and jumbled all up for dramatic effect.
