Thrand made a running leap at the wall, jumping high enough to be able to hook his axe over the top of the wall and then to pull himself up by the axe-handle until he got onto the fortification. Þrándur’s move was a clever use of the tool he had available: his axe. His move seems typical of fighters in the Viking age: he used the tools he had available to make the move required by circumstances to succeed in his struggle to clear the stronghold. Yet, it wasn’t an elite fighter, but rather, an ordinary farmer who used the clever move. This episode (and others like it) suggests that many Viking-age fighting men, at all levels of society, were skilled and clever in the use of weapons.
