Vikings Season 3. Lagertha & Ragnar Lothbrok lost their last chance of happiness in Uppsala. Why? What do you know about the Temple of Uppsala?

Vikings Season 3. Ragnar and Lagertha Lothbrok were a perfect couple and a happy family until the Æsir gods (including Odin, Frigg, Thor, Baldr and Týr) started to be angry with them. Where did this happen? In the Temple of Uppsala. Why? Because any member of their family sacrificed by the gods.

Norse religion was tough, even cruel. It is difficult to understand for a person of the 21st century. Every nine years (Lunar Calendar), they organized a big celebration in Uppsala … including human sacrifices.

Young warriors, offered volunteers, to be killed and fertilize the soil and crops with their blood. But Ragnar Lothbrok was too ambitious and too intelligent to believe in old legends. So, he sent a minor warrior to die, and even he had thought of sending a Christian (Athelstan).

Freyja (Frigg), the goddess of fertility and love, was insulted and now, they have split up. Lagertha cannot have children, and Ragnar has a “child without bones.”

What will happen in nine years? Maybe next time they must return to Uppsala, they take these matters seriously. Don’t play with the gods!

**Today, Uppsala is the capital of Uppsala County and the fourth largest city of Sweden. It was originally located a few kilometers to the north, at a location known as Gamla Uppsala (Old Uppsala). It was the main pagan Centre of Sweden, and the Temple at Uppsala contained magnificent idols of the Æsir gods. Of course, in the 12th century, as a replacement for the Scandinavian gods, Uppsala was made into a strong Christian center. Stefan was consecrated the first Archbishop of Uppsala and primate of Sweden.

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time.
