The History of Vikings

The History of Vikings
Hosted by Noah Tetzner
Welcome to The History of Vikings!

In this show, we'll uncover the secrets to the Viking’s massive successes, and learn how their raiding tactics, craftsmanship, engineering, and mythology, will forever leave a mark on world history.

The Vikings were an intelligent and accomplished people, still capable of fascinating us 1,000 years after their demise. But perhaps more fascinating than the Vikings themselves, are the gods they worshiped. To understand the Vikings is to understand their gods and the vast vibrant stories, and legends they told about them. Please join me in as we venture deep into The History of the Vikings!

Old Norse, Snorri Sturluson & The Realm of Jǫtunheimr With Dr. Jackson Crawford

Today I’m joined by Dr. Jackson Crawford! He’s an Old Norse specialist and translator teaching at the University of Colorado (formerly UC Berkeley and UCLA). In our almost hour-long discussion, we cover a plethora of topics, starting with an introduction to Old Norse, and then exploring the Poetic & Prose Edda’s, and what the differences between the two primary sources are. We also discuss the many different aspects of Norse Mythology, including the chief attributes among the gods, as well as the characterization of giants (or jötnar) in Norse Myth. I implore you to check out Dr. Crawford’s prolific YouTube channel, via the link below, as well as to purchase a copy of his translation of The Poetic Edda, or Saga of The Volsungs!
