If you believe in Odin and Thor, people laugh themselves to death. While it’s okay to believe in a man who turned water into wine, and walked on water

Kvinnens nøkkelrolle (Womens’ Key Role)

Hvilken rolle spilte kvinnen i det førkristne norrøne Viking samfunnet og hvilke rettigheter og plikter medførte dette?

(What role did women play in pre-Christian Norse Viking society and what rights and duties did this entail?)

HYTTEKULTUR

fuckyeahnorwegian:

Ok, children. It’s time for a bed time story and today mama gonna to talk about the norwegian cabin-culture.


Here are the basic ground rules:
-The cabin is always at least a three hour drive away from your house
- It must be surrounded by heaps of nature and shit
-There shall be no matching kitchen utencils
- Nothing looks better than the look of natural wood
- Walls are to be decorated with old kitchen supplies of copper
- The cabin is supposed to be icy cold when you arrive, and you must heat it with a fire in a stove
-Spagetthi and canned food are the basic cabin-food. You’ll be able to live of it for two weeks at least
- “your needings” will be done outside
- All beddings are supposed to itch
- Standard games are: card-games (as long as you have a pack of cards, mixed with another pack because you miss some cards from the first set), Ludo, Yatzy and Monopoly (also known as “the friendship-ender”

That’s it for tonight, kids. Remember to check under your bed for trolls

So I was reading the Prose Edda, which is an Icelandic telling of Norse mythology and ran across the description of Nidavellir, the realm of the dwarves.

HOVER
Jotner, Rimturser og Trollunger
As a Norse Mythology student I needed somewhere to put things. So this will be the home for everything between the latest research from the field, my work at an archaeological Iron Age/Viking museum and silliness and pretty things relating to the eras. Oh, and a rimtusse is a form of troll.
