>If thrall's children are free, who raises them?
In part their parents, in part the question is moot because people lived in large families in houses.
>Are they raised as thralls?
Nope. They get to do the same thing as the cottars/carls children.
>are they raised away from their thrall
Fosterparents is a big part of viking society, only people of high class ie nobles have fosterparents.
>Can a thrall marry a free person?
No, never. He can however be freed - usually as a a return favour for
working harder than usual or doing something extraordinary - and then
You would never marry outside your class. In fact if a king married a common woman, she would be his concubine, not wife.
