The Last Kingdom[]

Season 3[]

Wessex; Finan, Sihtric, and Hild ride with Bishop Erkenwald to Winchester. Whilst on the way there, they happen upon a group of men, the ravelling musician being one of them. The musician asks for any spare money, he gets asked if he's heading to Winchester. The musician replies that they are and that they'll meet them again in Winchester. ("Episode 3.8")

They explain that Uhtred remains in Coccham and that he wants his children back. Steapa reluctantly allows them inside the gates. Just as the gates are closing, a travelling musician asks to be allowed inside the gates. They’ve come to bring smiles and laughter to Winchester, and so Steapa allows them inside as well. Unbeknownst to him, Uhtred and Osferth are hidden in the back of the carriage. ("Episode 3.8")
