them are discussed.Yes, the book is quite old, but not outdated The language is quite clear a A good overview of Scandinavian mythology from an archeological perspective A nice approach, considering

Bernard Cornwell s Saxon Stories and wanted a littleinsight into the beliefs and superstitions of the Vikings during that time period This book didn t satisfy that curiosity as it was too broad, encompassing a longer time period and larger region than I was looking for This book is also pretty old, being published in 1969 But for the most part it was informative and a good starting point side note Interesting fact I learned the swastika was used as early as the Bronze Age long before the Nazi s picked up I might be the last person to know this little tidbit This book is a little old, but still a decent introduction or refresher on some of thepopular or common Norse myths and legends What it lacks in specifics and recent research, it makes up for in the photographs of landscapes, buildings, artifacts, and inscriptions For anyone looking for a comprehensive compilation or Norse myth, this is not an exhaustive or detailed account The stories herein are set in their respective

this is not an exhaustive or detailed account The stories herein are set in their respective time periods and locales, giving a wide view of the folk religions of Northern Europe If the topic interests you, this is a good book to get your feet wet or brush up , before plunging into translations or critical analyses of the Eddur Forcomplete treatments of the traditions of the North, there are better,educational books But this is an approachable, if a bit dated, introduction This book is different than your usual Myths of the Vikings sort of compilation because it approaches the the mythology from an archeological point of view, rather than an anecdotal one There are hundreds of photographs of carvings and other artificats, and the author attempts to interpret the myths through the eyes of a mortal, rather than simply recounting the sagas as we know them He presents the mythology as a religion, rather than literature, making guesses on rituals and sacrifices tha This book is

thing jam packed with stunning archaeological photos and well chosen Norse myths that are far rougher andauthentic than the versions you have heard before. This book is an excellent overview of its subject matter, filled with many amazing photos of Scandinavian relics Lots of good summations of various myths, with their souces forin depth reading. Nice for dipping into if the topic interests you Lots of good pictures. Rich in archaeological information and beautifully illustrated A must read for any Viking lover. A good introduction.
