I remember learning in history class that Harald's final fate marks the end of the Viking age.
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:

I’m just going to start the first volume of Bracewell’s Emma series. I’m excited for it
Olaf was a real person who became a saint for convincing ( killing ) pagans to convert. Check out his wiki page.
