“He Gave Him Many Deep Wounds”

Brant Gardner

This great battle temporarily ends with the wounding of Coriantumr, again at the hands of his opponent. The movement of the populations along with the armies accounts for the presence of the women and children. For Coriantumr, we have the impression that the women and children are there for protection from Shiz and his armies. For Shiz, it appears that they have been conscripted into his army.
