The myths of the Scandinavian gods and heroes permeated everyday life in Iceland and the northern reaches of Europe for over a millennium before the arrival of Christianity. Since that time, they have been perpetuated in literature and the arts in forms as diverse as Tolkien and Wagner. This book covers the entire cast of supernatural beings, from gods to trolls, heroes to monsters, and deals with the social and historical background to the myths, topics such as burial rites, sacrificial practices and runes.
