Norse mythology, Scandinavian mythology, Viking mythology; all refer to the pre-Christian religion of the Norwegian, Swedish, Icelandic, and Danish peoples. A few books group Finnish mythology in with the Norse but the old beliefs of Finland form a separate tradition although there are some interesting parallels. The Norse mythological system as we currently have it comes down to us mainly from the Icelandic Eddas and sagas which were written down a few centuries after the christianization of the north. There has been much research trying to discern the true ancient religion as practiced by the people of the Scandinavian countries as opposed to the representation we are given in the written sources. Aside from any influence Christianity might have played, Norse mythology presents us with a multilayered, often contradictory, world view with a myriad of parallels in other mythological systems. It is a playground for the comparative mythology researcher, rich with elements from Indo-European, Shamanistic, and other belief systems. Many people are familiar with J.R.R. Tolkien's

The Norse who came to Newfoundland were not fierce raiders in search of pillage and plunder.
Norsemen appear to have left their homeland in search of a place where their old customs and freedoms were not so threatened.
Though their culture was a violent one by our own standards and blood feuds were common, the Greenland colonists were not bloodthirsty sea-raiders.
Trees were felled to heat homes and smelt iron, and turf was stripped from the thin soils.
Sagas describe Vinland as a land of grassy meadows, with rivers full of salmon.
The discovery of Vinland was not followed by successful settlement and exploitation of the New World. For further information on the L'Anse aux Meadows site visit the Parks Canada L'Anse aux Meadows Web Site.

Canada Hall
The Norse
What Europeans considered a "New World" was in fact home to Native people for over 15,000 years before the first Europeans landed on the eastern shores of North America. Around A.D. 1000, the medieval Norse (Vikings) established the first European settlement, on the northern coast of Newfoundland , but they only stayed for a brief period.
At the end of the ninth century, a gradual migration began across the North Atlantic. Several hundred families left the Norwegian coast aboard knorrs rugged cargo vessels three times larger than the coasters then plying the North Sea to settle in Iceland. A century later, Eric the Red led their descendants to Greenland and a few of them followed his son, Leif the Lucky , as far as North America. Since the Norse used open ships offering no protection from the elements and lacked even the most rudimentary navigational devices, they had to cross the North Atlantic island by island, from Norway to North America. Each leg of the journey was about 600 kilometres.
Speculation about the Norse expeditions to North America was based primarily on traditional Icelandic sagas, which are supported by direct evidence uncovered by archaeologists since the 1960s. A handful of Norse artifacts scattered across the islands of the High Arctic and the remains of a settlement at

    The Challenge of Thor
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
    I AM the God Thor,
    I am the War God,
    I am the Thunderer!
    Here in my Northland,
    My fastness and fortress,
    Reign I forever! Here amid icebergs
    Rule I the nations;
    This is my hammer, Giants and sorcerers Cannot withstand it! These are the gauntlets Wherewith I wield it, And hurl it afar off; This is my girdle; Whenever I brace it, Strength is redoubled! The light thou beholdest Stream through the heavens, In flashes of crimson, Is but my red beard Blown by the night-wind, Affrighting the nations! Jove is my brother; Mine eyes are the lightning; The wheels of my chariot Roll in the thunder, The blows of my hammer Ring in the earthquake! Force rules the world still, Has ruled it, shall rule it; Meekness is weakness

    "I find no comfort in the shade
    Under the branch of the Great Ash.
    I remember the mist
    of our ancient past.
    As I speak to you in the present,
    My ancient eyes
    see the terrible future. "Do you not see what I see?
    Do you not hear
    death approaching? "The mournful cry of Giallr-horn
    shall shatter the peace
    And shake the foundation of heaven. "Raise up your banner And gather your noble company from your great hall, Father of the Slains. For you shall go to your destiny. "No knowledge can save you, And no magic will save you. For you will end up in Fenrir's belly, While heaven and earth will burn in Surt's unholy fire." Doom of Odin from the Book of Heroes Norse Mythology is a strange world. It's differed from other mythology, in that their characters and world, even in Asgard, are grave and solemn. This may all be due to the fact, even though the gods are immortal, they will be destroyed in the final battle between good and evil.
