Freyr or Frey is one of the most important gods of Norse religion. The name is conjectured to derive from the Proto-Norse frawjaz, "lord"..Freyr was associated with sacral kingship, virility and prosperity, with sunshine and fair weather, and was pictured as a phallic fertility god, Freyr "bestows peace and pleasure on mortals".. Freyr, sometimes referred to as Yngvi-Freyr, was especially associated with Sweden and seen as an ancestor of the Swedish royal house..In the Icelandic books the Poetic Edda and the Prose Edda, Freyr is presented as one of the Vanir, the son of the sea god Njörðr, and the twin brother of the goddess Freyja.. The gods gave him Álfheimr, the realm of the Elves, as a teething present.. He rides the shining dwarf-made boar Gullinbursti and possesses the ship Skíðblaðnir which always has a favorable breeze and can be folded together and carried in a pouch when it is not being used.. He has the servants Skírnir, Byggvir, and Beyla..The most extensive surviving Freyr myth relates Freyr's falling in love with the female jötunn Gerðr. Eventually, she becomes his wife but first Freyr has to give away his magic sword which fights on its own "if wise be he who wields it".. Although deprived of this weapon, Freyr defeats the jötunn Beli with an antler.. However, lacking his sword, Freyr will be killed by the fire jötunn Surtr during the events of Ragnarök...

The Ynglings were the oldest known Scandinavian dynasty. It can refer to the clans of the Scylfings (Old Norse Skilfingar), the semi-legendary royal Swedish clan during the Age of Migrations, with kings such as Eadgils, Onela and Ohthere...Ynglings also refers to the Fairhair dynasty, descending from the kings of Oppland, Norway.. According to surviving early sources, such as Ynglingatal and Íslendingabók, these kings were descended from the Swedish Scylfings of Uppland, Sweden.. The House of Munsö, a Swedish dynasty, also falls under the definition of Yngling.. The earliest kings of this dynasty that historians generally agree are historical are Eirik the Victorious and Olof Skötkonung..In the Scandinavian sources they are the descendants of Yngvi-Frey of Vanaheim.. Yngling means descendant of Frey, and in the Gesta Danorum of Saxo Grammaticus they are called the sons of Frey..In Ynglinga Saga in 1220 AD, Snorri Sturluson discusses marriages between Swedish and Finnish royal families. In 1220 AD (c.), in the Skáldskaparmál section of Edda, Sturluson discusses King Halfdan the Old, Nór's great-grandson, and nine of his sons who are the forefathers of various royal lineages, including "Yngvi, from whom the Ynglings are descended".. According to Orkneyinga Saga in 1230 AD, Nór founded Norway..He was a direct descendant of Fornjótr, the King of Finland, Kvenland and Gotland..Many Scandinavian historians name Halfdan the Old as an ancestor to Rollo, the Viking conqueror who founded Normandy and took the name Robert I (the first) after converting to Christianity. He is William the Conqueror's great grandfather...

Ongentheow (Old English: Ongenþeow, Ongenþio, Ongendþeow; Swedish: Angantyr) (died ca. 515) was the name of a semi-legendary Swedish king of the house of Scylfings, who appears in Old English sources.. He is generally identified with the Swedish king Egil (also Swedish Egill, Eigil) who appears in Ynglingatal, Historia Norwegiae and in Ynglinga saga..More than 4,000 Ynglings have been built and they are actively raced in 3 continents..Old Norse Yngvi, Old High German Inguin and Old English Ingwine are names that relate to a theonym which appears to have been the older name for the god Freyr.. Proto-Germanic Ingwaz was the legendary ancestor of the Ingaevones, or more accurately Ingvaeones, and is also the reconstructed name of the Elder Futhark ŋ rune..A torc, the so-called "Ring of Pietroassa", part of a late third to fourth century Gothic hoard discovered in Romania, is inscribed in much-damaged runes, one reading of which is gutanī [i(ng)]wi[n] hailag "to Ingwi[n] of the Goths holy"...

Lightbulb Mound Clearer


Anund's mound, a grave associated with Anund...
Quote:
Swedish: Bröt-Anund meaning trail-blazer Anund or Anund the Land Clearer; alternate names Brøt-Anundr (Old East Norse) or Braut-Önundr (Old West Norse), was a legendary Swedish king of the House of Yngling who reigned in the mid-seventh century. The name would have been Proto-Norse *Anuwinduz meaning "winning ancestor"..In his Ynglinga saga, Snorri Sturluson relates that Anund succeeded his father Ingvar on the Swedish throne, and after his father's wars against Danish Vikings and Estonian pirates, peace reigned over Sweden and there were good harvests. Anund was a popular king who became very rich, not only because of the peace and the good harvests but also because he avenged his father in Estonia..That country was ravaged far and wide and in the autumn Anund returned with great riches..In those days Sweden was dominated by vast and uninhabited forests, so Anund started making roads and clearing land and vast districts were settled by Swedes..Consequently, he was named Bröt-Anund. He made a house for himself in every district and used to stay as a guest in many homes...

Ohthere (also Ohtere), Old Norse Óttarr vendilkráka (Vendelcrow; in Modern Swedish Ottar Vendelkråka) is a semi-legendary king of Sweden of the house of Scylfings who would have lived during the 6th century (fl. c. 515 – c. 530)...His name can be reconstructed as Proto-Norse *Ōhta-harjaz or *Ōhtu-harjaz.. The harjaz element is common in Germanic names and has a meaning of "warrior, army" (whence English harry); by contrast, the oht element is less frequent, and has been tentatively interpreted as "fearsome, feared"...Eadgils, Adils, Aðils, Adillus, Aðísl at Uppsölum, Athisl, Athislus or Adhel was a semi-legendary king of Sweden, who is estimated to have lived during the 6th century..Beowulf and Old Norse sources present him as the son of Ohthere and as belonging to the ruling Yngling (Scylfing) dynasty..Eysteinn (Swedish: Östen; died ca 600) was the son of Eadgils and Yrsa of Saxony. He was the father of Ingvar.. The Eysteinn tumulus (Östens hög) in Västerås near Östanbro has been linked to King Eysteinn by some popular historians.. The term Hög is derived from the Old Norse word haugr meaning mound or barrow..Ohthere of Hålogaland ( Ottar fra Hålogaland) was a Viking Age Norwegian seafarer known only from an account of his travels that he gave to King Alfred (871–99) of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Wessex in about 890 AD. His account was incorporated into an Anglo-Saxon, or Old English, version of a Latin historical book written early in the 5th century by Paulus Orosius, called Historiarum Adversum Paganos Libri VII, or Seven Books of History Against the Pagans...

Yngvar Harra (or Ingvar) Proto-Norse *Ingu-Hariz (d. early 7th century) was the son of Östen and reclaimed the Swedish throne for the House of Yngling after the Swedes had rebelled against Sölvi..Snorri Sturluson relates in his Ynglinga saga that King Ingvar, Östen's son, was a great warrior who often spent time patrolling the shores of his kingdom fighting Danes and Estonian vikings (Víkingr frá Esthland).. King Ingvar finally came to a peace agreement with the Danes and could take care of the Estonian vikings..He consequently started pillaging in Estonia in retribution, and one summer he arrived at a place called Stein..The Estonians (sýslu kind) assembled a great army in the interior and attacked King Ingvar in a great battle. The Estonian forces were too powerful and Ingvar fell and the Swedish forces retreated. Ingvar was buried in a mound at a place called Stone or Hill fort (at Steini) on the shores of Estonia (Aðalsýsla)...Thorsteins saga Víkingssonar skips Ingvar's generation and makes his father Östen the father of Anund and grandfather of Ingjald.. It adds a second son to Östen named Olaf, who was the king of Fjordane in Norway...

Ingjald centralizing Sweden..
Quote:
Ingjald illråde or Ingjaldr hinn illráði (Ingold Ill-ruler or Ill-ready) was a legendary Swedish king of the House of Ynglings.. Ingjald may have ruled in the 7th century, and he was the son of the former king Anund..The Ynglinga saga, a part of the Heimskringla relates that the viceroy of Fjädrundaland was named Ingvar and he had two sons, Alf and Agnar, who were of the same age as Ingjald. Svipdag the Blind was the viceroy of Tiundaland, the province of Uppsala where the Tings and the Yule (Midwinter) sacrifices were held..One Midwinter, when Ingjald and Alf were six years old, many people had assembled at Uppsala for the sacrifices.. Alf and Ingjald played, but Ingjald found that he was the weaker boy and became so angry that he almost started to cry (which was strange because people named Ingjald were known to be stronger than average).. His foster-brother Gautvid led him to his foster-father Svipdag the Blind and told Svipdag about Ingjald's lack of manliness and strength. Svipdag said that it was a shame and the next day he gave Ingjald a roasted wolf's heart to eat.. From that day, Ingjald became a very ferocious person and had a bad disposition and breath..Anund arranged a marriage for his son Ingjald with Gauthild, the daughter of the Geatish king Algaut, who was the son of Gautrek the Mild and the grandson of Gaut.. Gautrek consented as he believed that Ingjald had inherited his father's disposition.. Gauthild's maternal grandfather was Olof the Sharp-sighted, the king of Närke..

Ingjald had two children, a son Olof Trätälja and a daughter Åsa.. His daughter had inherited her father's psychopathic disposition..She married king Guðröðr of Skåne. Before she murdered her husband she managed to make him kill his own brother Halfdan the Valiant, the father of the great Ivar Vidfamne..In order to avenge his father, Ivar Vidfamne gathered a vast host and departed for Sweden, where he found Ingjald at Ræning.. When Ingjald and his daughter realized that it was futile to resist, they set the hall on fire and succumbed in the flames...

Arrow Gudrød the Hunter


The Hunted - Silent Kill...
Quote:
Gudrød the Hunter (Old Norse: Guðrǫðr veiðikonungr, Norwegian: Gudrød Veidekonge), also known as the Magnificent (Old Norse: enn gǫfugláti, Norwegian: den gjeve), is a legendary character portrayed in the Norse sagas as a Norwegian petty king in the early 9th century.. According to the sagas, he was the father of Halfdan the Black, and thus the grandfather of Harald Fairhair, the first king of unified Norway..Halfdan the Mild (Old Norse: Hálfdan hinn mildi) was the son of king Eystein Halfdansson, of the House of Yngling and he succeeded his father as king, according to Heimskringla. He was king of Romerike and Vestfold..He was said to be generous in gold but to starve his men with food.. He was a great warrior who often pillaged and gathered great booty..His wife was Liv, the daughter of king Dag of Vestmar.. Halfdan the Mild died of illness in his bed..He was succeeded by his son, Gudrød the Hunter..

Eystein Halfdansson (Old Norse: Eysteinn Hálfdansson) was the son of Halfdan Hvitbeinn of the House of Yngling according to Heimskringla. He inherited the throne of Romerike.. Ari Thorgilsson in his Islendingabok calls him Eystein Fart, without comment, in his king list, just naming his father and his son.. Snorri does not call him by this nickname, but does give us a colourful story of his life..His wife was Hild, the daughter of the king of Vestfold, Erik Agnarsson.. Erik had no son, so Eystein obtained Vestfold as his wife's inheritance..Eystein died while pillaging in Varna.. King Skjöld of Varna, a great warlock, arrived at the beach and saw the sails of Eystein's ships.. He waved his cloak and blew into it which caused a boom of one ship to swing and hit Eystein so that he fell overboard and drowned..His body was salvaged and buried in a mound.. Eystein was succeeded by his son Halfdan the Mild...

Halfdan Whiteshanks (Old Norse: Hálfdan hvítbeinn) was a mythical petty king in Norway, described in the Ynglinga saga.. The following description is based on the account in Ynglinga saga, written in the 1220s by Snorri Sturluson..The historicity of the kings described in that saga is generally not accepted by modern historians..He was the son of Olof Trätälja of the House of Yngling.. His father was sacrificed to Odin by the Swedish settlers in Värmland because of a famine.. Some Swedes, however, realised that the famine was brought by overpopulation and not by the fact that the king had been neglecting his religious duties..Halfdan was to become a great king, who married Åsa, the daughter of king Eystein, the ruler of Oppland and Hedmark.. They had two sons, Eystein Halfdansson and Gudröd..Halfdan conquered a large part of Hedemark, Toten, Hadeland and a part of Vestfold.. When his brother Ingjald Olofsson died, he inherited Värmland.. Halfdan died of old age in Toten and was transported to Vestfold where he was buried under a mound in Skiringssal..



Viken, Norway..

Olaf Tree Feller (Old Norse: Óláfr trételgja, meaning Olaf Woodwhittler) was the son of the Swedish king Ingjald ill-ruler of the House of Yngling according to Ynglingatal..His mother was Gauthild, a princess of West Götaland, whose maternal grandfather was Olof the Sharp-sighted, the king of Nerike..His mother sent him to his foster-father Bove in West Götaland, where he grew up with his foster-brother Saxe who was surnamed Flette..When Olof heard of his father's death, he assembled the men who were willing to follow him and went to his kinsmen in Nerike, because after his father's atrocities, the Swedes had grown hostile towards the Ynglings..The Swedish settlers thus rebelled against Olof, surrounded his house on the shores of lake Vänern and burnt him inside it.. Thus he was sacrificed to Odin, like his ancestor Domalde..However, Historia Norwegiae says that Olof succeeded his father and ruled as the king of Sweden in peace until his death...Along the lower parts of the river Byälven in Värmland, there are three large barrows, which legend attributes to Olof Trätälja.. Moreover, there are many hillforts near this river and the northern shore of Lake Vänern testifying to a violent period...

Lightbulb Harald


Illustration from the 14th century Flateyjarbók...
Quote:
Fairhair (Old Norse: Haraldr Hárfagri, Norwegian: Harald Hårfagre; c. 850 – c. 932) was remembered by medieval historians as the first King of Norway.. According to traditions current in Norway and Iceland in the 12th & 13th centuries, he reigned from c. 872 to 930.. Most of his life remains uncertain, since the extant accounts of his life in the sagas were set down in writing around THREE centuries after his lifetime.. A few remnants of skaldic praise poems attributed to contemporary court poets exist which seem to refer to Harald's victories against opponents in Norway.. The information supplied in these poems is inconsistent with the tales in the sagas in which they are transmitted, and the sagas themselves often disagree on the details of his background and biography..Two of his sons, Eric Bloodaxe and Haakon the Good, succeeded Harald to become kings after his death...

The Flatey Book is the largest medieval Icelandic manuscript, comprising 225 written and illustrated vellum leaves.. It contains mostly sagas of the Norse kings as found in the Heimskringla, specifically the sagas about Olaf Tryggvason, St. Olaf, Sverre, Hakon the Old, Magnus the Good, and Harald Hardrada..The Flatey Book contains a short story called Völsa þáttr, which offers an account of a pagan ritual in which two men lift the lady of the household over a door frame to help her look into the otherworld; this ritual is also recorded by a 10th-century Arab Muslim writer named Ahmad ibn Fadlan, who witnessed this ritual firsthand during a Norse funeral..Further material was inserted towards the end of the 15th century..

Eric Haraldsson (Old Norse: Eiríkr Haraldsson, Norwegian: Eirik Haraldsson; c. 885 – 954), nicknamed Eric Bloodaxe (Old Norse: Eiríkr blóðøx, Norwegian: Eirik Blodøks), was a 10th-century Norwegian ruler.. He is thought to have had short-lived terms as King of Norway and twice as King of Northumbria (c. 947–948 and 952–954)..The dominant theme of the sagas about Harald's numerous sons is the struggle for the Norwegian throne, in particular the way it manifests itself in the careers of Haakon and his foil Eric.. According to Heimskringla, Harald had appointed his sons as client kings over the various districts of the kingdom, and intended Eric, his favourite son, to inherit the throne after his death.. At strife with his half-brothers, Eric brutally killed Ragnvald (Rögnvaldr), ruler of Hadeland, and Bjørn Farmann, ruler of Vestfold.. Some texts maintain that towards the end of his life, Harald allowed Eric to reign together with him (Heimskringla, Ágrip, Fagrskinna).. When Harald died, Eric succeeded to the realm, slaughtered the combined forces of his half-brothers Olaf and Sigrød, and gained full control of Norway..He set up the pole of spite in the cliff-face and left it standing; he faced the horse's eyes on the land, and he rist runes upon the pole, and said all the formal words of the curse..The last encounter happened when Erik and Gunnhild were living in England-De 4 Årstider I Nordvest...


The 5 Boroughs...

Matlock is the county town of Derbyshire, England. It is situated at the south eastern edge of the Peak District.. Following the Norman Conquest, much of the county was subject to the forest laws.. To the northwest was the Forest of High Peak under the custodianship of William Peverel and his descendants.. The rest of the county was bestowed upon Henry de Ferrers, a part of it becoming Duffield Frith. In time the whole area was given to the Duchy of Lancaster.. Meanwhile, the Forest of East Derbyshire covered the whole county to the east of the River Derwent from the reign of Henry II to that of Edward I..The Norman conquest of England was the 11th-century invasion and occupation of England by an army of Norman, Breton, and French soldiers led by Duke William II of Normandy, later styled as William the Conqueror..From a geological perspective, Derbyshire's solid geology can be split into two very different halves.. The oldest rocks occur in the northern, more upland half of the county, and are mostly of Carboniferous age, comprising limestones, gritstones, sandstones and shales..Younger still are the sandstones, shales and coal deposits found on the eastern flank of Derbyshire, forming the Coal Measures, which are of Westphalian age..Because of its central location in England, and its altitude range from 27 metres in the south to 636 metres in the north..Derbyshire is rich in natural mineral resources such as lead, iron, coal, and limestone, which have been exploited over a long period—lead, for example, has been mined since Roman times..Derbyshire contains many species at the edge of their UK distribution ranges..The Dark Peak is characterised by heathlands, bogs, gritstone edges and acid grasslands containing relatively few species, with plants such as heather..Several kings of Mercia are buried in the Repton area..The Canon de 4 de Vallière was a type of cannon-Delaware Route 4 (DE 4) is a state highway in New Castle County, Delaware..

Lightbulb Haakon the Good


Håkon den gode..
Quote:
Haakon Haraldsson (c. 920–961), also Haakon the Good (Old Norse: Hákon góði, Norwegian: Håkon den gode) and Haakon Adalsteinfostre (Old Norse: Hákon Aðalsteinsfóstri, Norwegian: Håkon Adalsteinsfostre) was the king of Norway from 934 to 961. He was noted for his attempts to introduce Christianity into Norway..Haakon was the youngest son of King Harald Fairhair and Thora Mosterstang.. He was born on the Håkonshella peninsula in Hordaland. King Harald determined to remove his youngest son out of harm's way and accordingly sent him to the court of King Athelstan of England..Haakon was fostered by King Athelstan, as part of an agreement made by his father, for which reason Haakon was nicknamed Adalsteinfostre.. The English court introduced him to the Christian religion.. On the news of his father's death, King Athelstan provided Haakon with ships and men for an expedition against his half-brother Eirik Bloodaxe, who had been proclaimed king of Norway...


Mother Thora Mosterstong..

At his arrival back in Norway, Haakon gained the support of the landowners by promising to give up the rights of taxation claimed by his father over inherited real property.. Eirik Bloodaxe soon found himself deserted on all sides, and saved his own and his family's lives by fleeing from the country.. Eirik fled to the Orkney Islands and later to the Kingdom of Jorvik, eventually meeting a violent death at Stainmore, Westmorland, in 954 along with his son, Haeric..Three of the surviving sons of Eirik Bloodaxe landed undetected on the coast of Hordaland in 961 and surprised the king at his residence in Fitjar..Haakon was mortally wounded at the Battle of Fitjar (Slaget ved Fitjar) after a final victory over Eirik’s sons.. The King’s arm was pierced by an arrow and he died later from his wounds.. He was buried in the burial mound (Håkonshaugen) in the village of Seim in Lindås municipality in the county of Hordaland.. Upon his death his court poet, Eyvindr Skáldaspillir, composed a skaldic poem Hákonarmál about the fall of the King in battle and his reception into Valhalla..Religion Norse paganism, Roman Catholicism..Season 1 Episode 30: Night Flight to Andorra..While McGill is radioing his employer, we see a dapple-grey horse in the background, seconds later the horse is dark brown...

After Haakon's death, Harald Greycloak, the eldest surviving son of Eirik Bloodaxe, ascended the throne as King Harald II, although he had little authority outside Western Norway.. Subsequently the Norwegians were tormented by years of war. In 970, King Harald was tricked into coming to Denmark and killed in a plot planned by Haakon Sigurdsson, who had become an ally of King Harald Bluetooth..The Jelling stones are massive carved runestones from the 10th century, found at the town of Jelling in Denmark..The runic inscriptions on these stones are considered the best known in Denmark..The stone has a figure of Jesus Christ on one side and on another side a serpent wrapped around a lion.. Christ is depicted as standing in the shape of a cross and entangled in what appear to be branches.. One scholar has suggested that this imagery was used to suggest that Christ had replaced the Norse pagan god Odin, who in one myth hung for nine nights in the tree Yggdrasill...A facsimile of the image of Christ on Harald's runestone appears on the inside front cover of the Danish passport..During his reign, Harald oversaw the reconstruction of the Jelling runic stones, and numerous other public works.. Some believe these projects were a way for him to consolidate economic and military control of his country.. Ring forts were built in 5 strategic locations..He constructed the oldest known bridge in southern Scandinavia, the 5 meters wide, 760 meters long Ravninge Bridge at Ravninge meadows..Chronicon Roskildense (Roskildekrøniken-Roskilde Chronicle) a small Danish historical work, which is, except for few yearbooks, the oldest known attempt to write a coherent account of Danish history by a Danish author, spanning from the introduction of Christianity in Denmark to the author's own time..It is written in Latin...

Arrow Eagles Nest


The Ash Yggdrasil" (1886)..
Quote:
In Norse mythology, Yggdrasil from Old Norse Yggdrasill, is an immense tree that is central in Norse cosmology, in connection to which the nine worlds exist..Yggdrasil is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson (1179 – 23 September 1241)..was assassinated in his house at Reykholt in autumn of 1241.. It is not clear that he was ever given a chance to avail himself of the "capture" option..He fled to the cellar..


An ancient lunatic..

Yggdrasil is an immense ash tree that is central and considered very holy..



The gods go to Yggdrasil daily to assemble at their things..The branches of Yggdrasil extend far into the heavens, and the tree is supported by three roots that extend far away into other locations; one to the well Urðarbrunnr in the heavens, one to the spring Hvergelmir, and another to the well Mímisbrunnr.. Creatures live within Yggdrasil, including the wyrm (dragon) Níðhöggr, an unnamed eagle, and the stags Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr and Duraþrór..



Reigns in the trees of the night..

In stanza 137 of the poem Hávamál, Odin describes how he once sacrificed himself to himself by hanging on a tree...In stanza 31, Odin says that the ash Yggdrasil has three roots that grow in three directions.. He details that beneath the first lives Hel, under the second live frost jötnar, and beneath the third lives mankind.. Stanza 32 details that a squirrel named Ratatoskr must run across Yggdrasil and bring "the eagle's word" from above to Níðhöggr below.. Stanza 33 describes that four harts named Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr and Duraþrór consume "the highest boughs" of Yggdrasil is mentioned in two books in the Prose Edda; Gylfaginning and Skáldskaparmál.. In Gylfaginning, Yggdrasil is introduced in chapter 15..In chapter 16, Gangleri asks "what other particularly notable things are there to tell about the ash?" High says there is quite a lot to tell about..In chapter 41, the stanza from Grímnismál is quoted that mentions that Yggdrasil is the foremost of trees..

Arrow Three Norns


Sjódreygil and the Norns Faroese stamps 2006..
Quote:
According to Snorri Sturluson's interpretation of the Völuspá, the 3 most important norns, Urðr (Wyrd), Verðandi and Skuld come out from a hall standing at the Well of Urðr (well of fate) and they draw water from the well and take sand that lies around it, which they pour over Yggdrasill so that its branches will not rot.. These norns are described as 3 powerful maiden giantesses (Jotuns) whose arrival from Jötunheimr ended the golden age of the gods.. They may be the same as the maidens of Mögþrasir who are described in Vafþrúðnismál..Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd...


The Norns of fate..

There are THREE Norns who lives at the well Urd.. Their names are Urd “past”, Verdani “present” and Skuld “future” The 3 Norns are the goddesses of fate. They spend most of their time spinning the threads of life, deciding the fate of every human, animal and every god.. Whenever a child is born, the Norns spins the fate of the child in their threads.. The 3 Norns will every morning start the day by placing a rooster at the top of Yggdrasil..The bragging of the rooster is a wakeup call for all humans and gods.. Every day the Norns will also carry water from Urd’s well, and pour it over Yggdrasil.. The water from the well is of vital importance to keep the tree green and healthy.. The Norns was very respected in Viking times, it was quite common to serve a woman who had just given birth to a child some porridge, they called this porridge for “Norn porridge” The Vikings believed the Norns were always nearby whenever a child was born. The porridge was considered an offering to the Norns.. They hoped the porridge would please the Norns and secure good health for the mother and the child..Beside these THREE norns, there are many other norns who arrive when a person is born in order to determine his or her future..Thrice and once the hedge-pig whined...


Macbeth - Witches Opening ...

Harpier cries 'Tis time, 'tis time..The third root from Yggdrasil goes down to Niflheim, close to the well Hvergelmir. It is here the dragon Nidhug gnawed on one of Yggdrasils roots.. Nidhug is also known to suck the blood out of the dead bodies.. At the very top of Yggdrasil there lives an eagle. And down by the roots of the tree lives a dragon named Nidhug.. The eagle and the dragon are bitter enemies.. They truly despise each other.. A squirrel named Ratatosk, is spending a lot of time each day, running up and down the tree.. Ratatosk does whatever he can, to keep the hatred between the eagle and Nidhug alive.. Every time Nidhug says a curse or an insult about the eagle, Ratatosk will run up to the top of the tree, and inform the eagle what Nidhug just said.. The eagle is equally rude in his comments about Nidhug.. Ratatosk just loves to gossip which is the reason why the eagle and the dragon remains constant foes..Round about the cauldron go;In the poison'd entrails throw..Toad, that under cold stone..Days and nights has 31..Swelter'd venom sleeping got, Boil thou first i' the charmed pot...

Quote:
Bear Island (Norwegian: Bjørnøya,) is the southernmost island of the Norwegian Svalbard archipelago.. The island is located in the western part of the Barents Sea, approximately halfway between Spitsbergen and the North Cape..Seafarers of the Viking era may have known Bear Island, but the documented history begins in 1596, when Willem Barents sighted the island on his THIRD expedition..He named this island "Vogel Eylandt", "Bird Island" in English..The strategic value of Bear Island was recognised in the late 19th century, when Imperial Russia and Imperial Germany demonstrated their interests in the Barents Sea..Harold is a structure used in longform improvisational theatre.. Developed by Del and brought to fruition through Close collaboration..Over 8 zillion copies were purchased..Do they sell Arabic horses?..


WHEN 8 BELLS TOLL ..

A converted fishing trawler, Morning Rose carries a movie-making crew across the Barents Sea to isolated Bear Island, well above the Arctic Circle, for some on-location filming, but the script is a secret known only to the producer and screenwriter.. En route, members of the movie crew and ship's company begin to dye under mysterious circumstances..The whole island was privately owned by the coal mining company Bjørnøen AS from 1918 to 1932, when the Norwegian state took over the shares..As the shipping routes from the Atlantic Ocean to Murmansk and the ports of the White Sea pass through the Barents Sea, the waters near Bear Island were of great strategic importance in the Second World War as well as the Cold War..A typical Harold is 25 to 40 minutes..The basic form starts with an "opening"..First of all, it's not an Arabic horse, okay?..


Babylone 5..

The murders continue ashore, and Marlowe, who is not what he seems to be either, discovers they may be related to some forgotten events of the Second World War..A small group of German soldiers was abandoned on Bear Island..They were supposed to establish and man a weather station there, but after losing radio contact in May 1945, they were isolated, and surrendered to some Norwegian seal hunters on 4 September..There are very few opportunities for individual travel to Bjørnøya..The island's outline is an irregular triangle..Apart from a few sandy beaches, the coast is mostly steep, with high cliffs and notable signs of erosion such as caverns and isolated rock pillars.. A number of anchorages and landing points exist, as well as a small harbor at Herwighamna on the north coast.. However, none of these are safe in all weather conditions..Moreover, the sub-population of Ursus maritimus polar bears found here is a genetically distinct set of polar bears associated with the Barents Sea region..After eliciting the audience's suggestion, the ensemble explores it for a few minutes in either an unplanned or a predetermined structure..Santa Rosa County is a county located in the U.S. state of Florida..It's..You're from New York, okay?..

Lightbulb Story ot Three Bears


Ursa Minor, with Draco looping around it..
Quote:
The Stranglers - Bear Cage (12" version)..


Goldilocks and the Three Bears and the older story title, "The Story of the Three Bears", is a very old Nursery Tale with 2 variants..The original tale tells of an ugly, old woman who enters the forest home of three bachelor bears whilst they are away.. She sits in their chairs, eats some of their porridge, and falls asleep in one of their beds. When the bears return and discover her, she starts up, jumps from the window, and is never seen again..The other major version brings Goldilocks to the tale (replacing the old woman), and an even later version retained Goldilocks, but has the three bachelor bears transformed into Papa, Mama, and Baby Bear..The story makes extensive use of the literary rule of three, featuring three chairs, three bowls of porridge, three beds, and the three title characters who live in the house...


Illustration by Arthur Rackham..

Ursa Major (Great Bear and Charles' Wain) is a constellation in the northern celestial hemisphere.. One of the 48 constellations listed by Ptolemy (second century AD), it remains one of the 88 modern constellations.. It can be visible throughout the year in most of the northern hemisphere.. Its name, Latin for "the greater (or larger) she-bear", stands as a reference to and in direct contrast with Ursa Minor, "the smaller she-bear", with which it is frequently associated in mythology and amateur astronomy..The constellation's most recognizable asterism, a group of se7en relatively bright stars commonly known as the "Big Dipper", "the Wagon" or "the Plough" , both mimicks the shape of the lesser bear (the "Little Dipper") and is commonly used as a navigational pointer towards the current northern pole star, Polaris in Ursa Minor.. The Big Dipper and the constellation as a whole have mythological significance in numerous world cultures, usually as as symbol of the north...

The trapezoidal abstract sculpture is made of Cor-Ten steel; it is installed on the lawn..The Ursa Major is the largest dragline excavator currently in use in North America. Its bucket is 160 cubic yards, and it has a 360-foot boom..It weighs a little less than 15 million pounds..A dragline excavator is a piece of heavy equipment used in civil engineering and surface mining..Draglines fall into two broad categories: those that are based on standard, lifting cranes and the heavy units which have to be built on-site...

Arrow Mother of Kings


The elk in Finnish petroglyphs..

Harald being baptized by Poppo the monk..
Quote:
Gunnhild convinces Eric Bloodaxe to skill the Finnish wizards..



According to the 12th century Historia Norwegiæ, Gunnhild was the daughter of Gorm the Old, king of Denmark, and Erik and Gunnhild met at a feast given by Gorm.. Modern scholars have largely accepted this version as accurate.. In their view, her marriage with Erik was a dynastic union between two houses, that of the Norwegian Ynglings and that of the early Danish monarchy (who may have claimed descent from Ragnar Lodbrok), in the process of unifying and consolidating their respective countries. Erik himself was the product of such a union between Harald and Ragnhild, a Danish princess from Jutland..The pagan Finnish belief about the soul of a human was different from that of most other cultures across the world, in that they believed the human soul to be composed of three different parts: henki, luonto and itse.. Each of the three were autonomous beings on their own..Among the Finns' western neighbours, the Norse of Scandinavia, it was a common belief that the Finns were wizards..I only said that next time around I shall be a mother...


From an illustration by Christian Krohg...

Harald established control over the trade route along the Norwegian coast.. In the sagas, Gunnhild is most often depicted in a negative light; she is described by Jenny Jochens as known for her "power and cruelty, admired for her beauty and generosity, and feared for her magic, cunning, sexual insatiability, and her goading"..Gunnhild is often connected with sorcery, as seen throughout the Icelandic sagas.. This magical ability may be recognized in part due to Gunnhild's affiliation with the Finns, having lived in a hut with two Finnish wizards in Finnmark and learned magick from them, according to Snorri in Heimskringla.. Also as seen in Heimskringla, Eirík first made the acquaintance of Gunnhild when he was younger and off on a raid in northern Norway.. His men had stumbled upon the Finns' hut where she was staying, and described her as "a woman so beautiful that they had never seen the like of her"..In Karelia it was believed that a bird brings the soul to a newborn baby, and that the same bird takes the soul with it when person dyes..Gunnhild remained resilient to maintain power for the rest of her life, acting as Queen Regent to her son Harald, and continuing to be a major deciding factor and source for political advice..According to tales, foreign seafarers bought ropes tied in knots from Finns.. In the languages of Finland and Estonia alone, may be found more than 33,000 native folk-melodies, 55,000 folk tales, 125,000 riddles, 135,000 superstitions, 215,000 proverbs, 200,000 folk songs..Do you like the sea?.

Because of the very nature of life in prehistoric, ancient, and medieval Finland, the Finns relied heavily on hunting for survival. As such the animals that they hunted became vital to their survival, and they were treated with respect..The bear was considered sacred.. The pagan Finns believed that it came from the sky and had the ability to reincarnate..A celebration known as Karhunpeijaiset ("celebration of the bear") was practised whenever a bear was killed and eaten.. The ceremony was designed to convince the bear's soul to reincarnate back into the forest.. After the flesh was eaten, the bones were buried, and the skull placed on a venerated pine tree known as kallohonka..Before going hunting, the Finns would pray to the Emuus, or ancestral mothers of various animal species, for help..From ancient drawings, petroglyphs, it is clear that the elk was a very important animal.. It appears much more than bears do..Many water birds were holy for Finns and other Finnic peoples..For example, there are many stories about a bird creating the world.. In many traditions it was believed that the world was created by the egg of a bird..I am the mother of everything and you are my egg..

Lightbulb Chronicon Roskildense


House of Denmark..
Quote:
Sweyn Forkbeard (Old Norse: Sveinn Tjúguskegg; Danish: Sven Tveskæg; 960 – 3 February 1014 Gainsborough, Lincolnshire) was king of Denmark, England, and parts of Norway...His name appears as Swegen in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle.. He was the son of King Harald Bluetooth of Denmark, and the father of Cnut the Great..In the mid-980s, Sweyn revolted against his father and seized the throne.. Harald was driven into exile and died shortly afterwards in November of 986 or 987.. In 1000, with the allegiance of Trondejarl, Eric of Lade, Sweyn ruled most of Norway.. In 1013, before his darth, he became the first Danish king of England after a long effort..Burial Roskilde Cathedral or St. Trinity in Lund...


Harald II of Denmark..

Many details about Sweyn's life are contested..Adam of Bremen's Deeds of the Bishops of Hamburg, and the Heimskringla, a 13th-century work by Icelandic author Snorri Sturluson..Conflicting accounts of Sweyn's later life also appear in the Encomium Emmae Reginae, an 11th-century Latin encomium in honour of his son king Cnut's queen Emma of Normandy, along with Chronicon ex chronicis by Florence of Worcester, another 11th-century author..Gesta Hammaburgensis ecclesiae pontificum covers the entire period known as the Viking Age, from the foundation of the bishopric under Willehad in 788 until the rule of prince-bishop Adalbert in Adam's own time (1043–1072).. The text focusses on the history of the Hamburg-Bremen diocese and its bishops. As the bishops had jurisdiction over the missions to Scandinavia, it is also gives a report of the Norse paganism of the period...


Alive by Pearl Jam ..

Harald II of Denmark was King of Denmark from 1014 until his death in 1018.. He was the eldest son of Sweyn Forkbeard and Gunhild of Wenden, and was regent while his father was fighting Ethelred the Unready in England.. He inherited the Danish throne in 1014, and held it while his brother, the later king Cnut the Great conquered England.. After his death in 1018, he was succeeded by Cnut the Great.. Little detail is known about Harald II..Encomium is a Latin word deriving from the Classical Greek ἐγκώμιον (enkomion) meaning "the praise of a person or thing"...

The Venerable Bede Translates..
Quote:

The Thing + Human Mutant..

The Jutes,along with some Angles,Saxons and Frisians,sailed across the North Sea to raid and eventually invade Great Britain from the late 4th century onwards, either displacing, absorbing, or destroying the native Celtic peoples there.. According to Bede, they finally settled in KentHampshire (in Wessex), and the Isle of Wight..There is some evidence that the Haestingas people who settled in the Hastings area of Sussex, in the 6th century, may have been Jutish in origin..The Frisii were little more than occasional and incidental players in Roman accounts of history, which focus on Roman actions that were of interest to Roman readers..As a consequence, references to them are disjoint and offer little useful information about them.. Hot coffee and food is available in basement shopping levels 2 and 3...


A map of Jutish settlements in Britain c. 575...

The Angles (Latin: Anglii) were one of the main Germanic peoples who settled in Britain in the post-Roman period and their name is the root of the name England.. The name comes from the district of Angeln, an area located on the Baltic shore of what is now Schleswig-Holstein, the most northern state of Germany..The Corporation of Trinity House of Deptford Strond, known as The Master Wardens and Assistants of the Guild Fraternity or Brotherhood of the most glorious and undivided Trinity and of St. Clement in the Parish of Deptford Strond in the County of Kent, is a private corporation governed under a Royal Charter (rather than a non-departmental public body).. It has THREE core functions..By the 1960s Trinity House licensed about 500 pilots, of whom about 350 were in the London District, handling an estimated 60% of the nation’s piloted tonnage..

The Saxons (Latin: Saxones) were a confederation of Germanic tribes on the North German Plain..Scratchell's Bay is a bay on the south west coast of the Isle of Wight, England just to the south east of The Needles..The Needles Lighthouse was built by Trinity House constructed from granite, it stands 33.25 metres (109.1 ft) high and is a circular tower with straight sides..It faces roughly south towards the English Channel, it is 250m in length and is straight..The beach which is made up mostly of shingle cannot be reached any other way than by boat, as there is no access from the top of the cliff.. A small cave is located at the east end of the bay, near Sun Corner..The name is thought to be one of the many names for the Devil..

Lightbulb Adad


Abode Heaven..
Quote:
In February 1287 a storm hit the southern coast of England with such ferocity that whole areas of coastline were redrawn.. Silting up and cliff collapses led to towns that had stood by the sea finding themselves landlocked, while others that had been inland found themselves with access to the sea..The city of Winchelsea on Romney Marsh was destroyed (later rebuilt on the cliff top behind)...Nearby Broomhill was also destroyed. The course of the nearby river Rother was diverted away from New Romney, which was almost destroyed and left a mile from the coast, ending its role as a port.. The Rother ran instead to sea at Rye, prompting its rise as a port.. The storm contributed to the collapse of a cliff at Hastings, taking part of Hastings Castle with it, blocking the harbour and ending its role as a trade centre, though it continued as a centre for fishing. Whitstable in Kent is also reported to have been hit by the surge..In all, the storm can be seen to have had a powerful effect on the Cinque Ports, two of which were hit (Hastings and New Romney), along with the supporting "Antient Town" of Winchelsea.. Meanwhile, the other Ancient Town of Rye was advantaged..The storm is one of two huge ones in England in 1287. The other was the one known in the Netherlands as St. Lucia's flood in December, the following winter. Together with a surge in January 1286,they seem to have prompted the decline of one of England's then leading ports, Dunwich in Suffolk...


Moses Parts the Sea - The10 Commandments (1956) HD..

Adad in Akkadian and Ishkur in Sumerian and Hadad in Aramaic and Arabic language, are the names of the storm-god in the Akkadian, Assyrian and Babylonian pantheon..All THREE are usually written by the logogram dIM. The Akkadian god Adad is cognate in name and functions with northwest Semitic god Hadad..When Enki distributed the destinies, he made Ishkur inspector of the cosmos.. In one litany Ishkur is proclaimed again and again as "great radiant bull, your name is heaven" and also called son of An, lord of Karkara; twin-brother of Enki, lord of abundance, lord who rides the storm, lion of heaven..In other texts Adad/Ishkur is sometimes son of the moon god Nanna/Sin by Ningal and brother of Utu/Shamash and Inanna/Ishtar.. He is also occasionally son of Enlil...

Port Elizabeth Floods 1968..Area code 041..
Quote:
The Great Flood of 1968 was a flood caused by a pronounced trough of low pressure which brought exceptionally heavy rain and thunderstorms to South East England and France in mid-September 1968, with the worst on Sunday 15 September 1968, and followed earlier floods in South West England during July..A Spanish plume weather pattern saw a low over the northwest of Spain track across the Bay of Biscay, hot and humid air advected to the eastern side of the low leading to severe storms.. The wake of the storm left 7 fatalities in the UK..The River Chew suffered a major flood in 1968 with serious damage to towns and villages along its route, including sweeping away the bridge at Pensford..“On 1 September 1968, 16 inches of rain fell on Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape in a single day- the highest rainfall figure in living memory.”- Eastern Cape Herald...

On 10 July 1968, torrential rainfall, with 175 millimetres (7 in) falling in 18 hours on Chew Stoke, double the area's average rainfall for the whole of July, led to widespread flooding in the Chew Valley, and water reached the first floor of many buildings..After the age of 11, most pupils attend Chew Valley School..On 4 February 2001, Princess Anne opened the Rural Housing Trust development at Salway Close..Chew Stoke has its own 9-member parish council with responsibility for local issues..In the church are bronze plaques commemorating the 11 local people who died in World War I and the 6 who were killed in World War II.. Each year, over a weekend in September (usually the first), a "Harvest Home" is held with horse and pet shows, bands, a funfair, and other entertainments.. The Harvest Home was cancelled in 1997 as a mark of respect following the death of Princess Diana in the previous week..During November 2012 a series of floods affected many parts of Britain.. On 22 November a man died after his car was washed down a flooded brook in Chew Stoke and trapped against a small bridge..Chew Stoke is approximately 10 miles (16 km) south of Bristol, 15 miles (24 km) from Bath, and 9 miles (14 km) from Keynsham..Yew Tree Farmhouse, one of the oldest buildings in the area, is a cruck built farmhouse of which there are very few in North Sumerset..Samuel Burleigh Gabriel (died 1866) was a Victorian architect who practised in Bristol...
