Here the Viking soldiers carry off their booty. They return to their boats leaving Scarborough ablaze. Note that a number of men wear arm rings. Arm-rings allowed the Vikings to display their status but at the same time to keep their wealth about their person. The typical Scandinavian Viking arm-ring is made by twisting together a thick rod and a thin wire of beaded gold. The ring has a gap which allows it to be sprung onto the upper arm. Notice the sword wielding soldier is wearing a belt and pouch. Belt pouches and tarsoly (pronounced tar-shoy') were worn by the Norsemen. A highly decorated belt and tarsoly demonstrated the high rank and wealth of the owner.
