Scandinavian culture viking traditions design norwegian swedish danish finnish icelandic the life and times of aud the deep minded aud the deep minded daughter of a norwegian viking who ruled in the hebrides in the cent in its broadest sense a range of both traditional rural clothes as well modern folk costumes . Rooted in ritual practice and oral tradition old norse religion was fully integrated with other aspects of norse life including subsistence warfare and social interactions open codifications of old norse beliefs were either rare or non existent. Some of my favorite chapters in this book were norse culture and the importance of mythology the gods of norse mythology where the gods like odin frigg thor and others are highlighted norse paganism and the norse rituals but obviously i enjoyed reading all of the other chapters as well. Like macdonald he drew on norse germanic and celtic folk and mythic traditions for much of his cosmology his orcs or goblins are essentially the dark elves and trolls of scandinavian myth and he also took his version of the dwarves from the same folk traditions
