Warriors at the Allthing

 

It was time for the Spring Assembly at Althing. Thorstein arrived the day before with a large contingent of his men. Others, friends and farmers who lived near Thorstein arrived with him. They all set up their booths.

Thorstein had his men set up a very large booth and covered it with canvas. No one used this large booth.

The next day Steiner arrived with many men. At the head of this force was Tongue-Odd. Steiner and his supporters set up their booths.

Both sides were heavily armed.

Steiner walked around bragging about how he was going to win the case and have Thorstein outlawed.

Thorstein, being cheiftan, had the responsibility to see that the process of law was duly followed. He reminded those in charge of hearing the case what the rules were.
