Gods and Myths of the Viking Age based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This book should be on the required reading list for every mythology course offered. It's an easy read, and it's packed full of details not revealed in the excellent mythology course I took.
Davidson describes thoroughly, though not listlessly, the Norse deities and others and their influence on the vikings. It is organized via chapter based on the realm of a deity's control (i.e. The Gods of Battle chapter includes the gods of battle), and is not in the chronlogical order based on which certain mythological events happened when or before another. Also, it is a fairly short read, and informative on the subject.
