  • Viking burials and evidence of Viking occupation

    Viking burials and evidence of Viking occupation exist all over the British Isles, one of the most recent discoveries though is also one that fascinates me the most.
  • Vidar, God of vengeance

    In Norse mythology the god Vidar is a member of the Æsir, the son of Odin and God of vengeance, it is written that Vidar is the God who will avenge the killing of his father and slay the wolf Fenrir.
