One thing i find intersting
Mentioning that i´m Swedish i might come across as a stuck up shit (and i am , though not for Heathen reasons. Being Swedish doesent make me me anything, exept Swedish). But what really interests me (well, one of many things) is how Heathenry has taken hold and made itself an identity in many places. Heathenry is now an empowering force, a way of living and a way of understanding all over the...

Varangian Guard →
Detailed description of arms and armour. In Byzantium the members of the Varangian Guard were famous as men with red hair and beards, “as tall as date palms”; they were also said to drink too much. But the main symbol of the Varangians was the longhafted Danish axe with its crescent-shaped edge.

Divers uncover evidence of Viking port →
Archaeologists say 100-yard jetties found at the site of an ancient Viking village in Sweden suggest a coastal marketplace not previously imagined. The jetties, five times longer than previously believed, show evidence of the Vikings’ extensive trade system, Olsson said. “The remains of the port structures show that it was actually a port, not just small jetties jutting out onto the...
The Lombards (Langobardi) →
The Lombards, or Langobards, originated in the lower Elbe Valley. They are mentioned by Tacitus (Germania, 40) as one of the many tribes collectively known as the Suebi.

A FRACTURED SKULL AND A THIGH BONE HACKED IN HALF — FINDS OF DAMAGED HUMAN BONES ALONG WITH AXES, SPEARS, CLUBS AND SHIELDS CONFIRM THAT THE BOG AT ALKEN ENGE WAS THE SITE OF VIOLENT CONFLICT. ‘It’s clear that this must have been a quite far-reaching and dramatic event that must have had profound effect on the society of the time,’ explains Project Manager Mads Kähler Holst, professor of...

Headed by Augustine of Canterbury, its goal was to convert the Anglo-Saxons to Christianity. By the death of the last missionary in 653, they had established Christianity in southern Britain.

Heathenry and Social Media →
It is perhaps the vast size of social networks and the number of Heathens on them that give them such a huge advantage when it comes to publicizing events, blogs, real world journals, books, and websites. Further, because of the vast number of Heathens on social media one gets exposed to many different viewpoints. As fewer and fewer websites are being operated by Heathen groups, less and less...
