Huginn and Muninn Two ravens sit on his (Odin’s) shoulders and whisper all the news which they see and hear into his ear; they are called Huginn and Muninn. He sends them out in the morning to fly around the whole world, and by breakfast they are back again. Thus, he finds out many new things and this is why he is called ‘Hrafnaguð’ (Raven God). -Snorri Sturluson Art by Polliana J.

A few viking era artifacts I'm honoured to own, all discovered in Denmark and dating from around a thousand years ago. The arrowhead was discovered from the area of a battle site while the other artifacts were discovered near a lake. My favourite is the Tursaansydän pendant. The symbol is said to represent Thor's spinning hammer and was worn for protection in northern Europe, I still wear the pendant on occasions⚡🌲 #artifact #norse #viking

"Solen kom från söder i sällskap med månen på höger hand över himlaranden. Solen ej visste, var salar hon hade, månen ej visste, vad makt han hade, stjärnorna ej visste, var de skimra skulle." "Sól varp sunnan, sinni mána, hendi inni hægri um himinjöður; sól það né vissi hvar hún sali átti, stjörnur það né vissu hvar þær staði áttu, máni það né vissi hvað hann megins átti."

Thor, the brawny thunder god, is the archetype of a loyal and honorable warrior, the ideal toward which the average human warrior aspired. He’s the indefatigable defender of the Aesir gods and their fortress, Asgard. In addition to his role as a model warrior and defender of the order of society and its ambitions, Thor also played a large role in the promotion of agriculture and fertility (something which has already been suggested by his blessing of the lands in which the first Icelanders settled). This was another extension of his role as a sky god, and one particularly associated with the rain that enables crops to grow. (Interesting info aside, how beautiful is this bust? Etsy has the best shit.) @oreamnosoddities #thor #thundergod #skygod #pagan #heathen #mythologynerd #norsemythology #oreamnosoddities #paganism #heathenism

The few toys that Viking children had were made of bones and wood. Ships, swords, dolls, animal figures and more were generally made of wood. Bones were used to make noise producing toys.

Snorri Sturluson, (born 1179, Hvammur, Iceland—died Sept. 22, 1241, Reykjaholt), Icelandic poet, historian, and chieftain, author of the Prose Edda and the Heimskringla. Snorri, a descendant of the great poet and hero of the Egils saga, Egill Skallagrímsson, was brought up at Oddi from the age of three in the home of Jón Loptsson, the most influential chieftain in Iceland. From him Snorri acquired both a deep knowledge of Icelandic tradition and a European breadth of outlook. In 1199 Snorri married an heiress and began to acquire lands and power. In 1206 he settled at Reykjaholt, where most of his works were written between 1223 and 1235. During 1215–18 and 1222–32 he was “lawspeaker,” or president, of the Icelandic high court. In 1218 he was invited to Norway by King Haakon IV. Snorri became involved in politics while visiting the Norwegians. He convinced Haakon that he could become king of Iceland, and he became Haakon’s vassal. Snorri returned to Iceland in 1220,
