In Medieval times warriors basically went out to get slaughtered for king and country. Unless you were like a Knight in Canterbury tales, you were basically fodder for the battlefield or a shish kabob for some dragon. Viking warriors in Beowulf enjoyed more glory and fame than their regular medieval counterparts. They raped,pillaged and plundered and then partied like it was 1699. They slept and basically held a place of high stature. In Beowulf the warrior was closely related to the god, Herot Hall and the king. Glory in battle was everything. Grendel was a tangible antagonist.
