one of my favorites from the Edda -

'Brothers will battle to bloody end,

and sister's sons their sib betray,

woe's in the worlk, much wantonness;

[axe-age, sword-age- sundered are shields -

wind-age, wolf-age, ere the world crumbles;]

will the spear of no man spare the other.

Considering my maternal great grandmother was from Oslo, and my paternal great grandfather was a Lapp, my heritage was with me from before I could walk. I grew up listening to the stories in the old oral tradition (in English though). I would like to be able to trace my family back as far as it can go, and also investigate the Scot in the woodpile,  as my mother's mother was born a Hunter.

Im related to the Vikings through the Norman invaders from England, also related to an ancient tribe called the Angles, who I believe were from southern Denmark

T-train I agree.  The emphasis Norse culture placed on courage and bravery is one of my favourite things about it.  An interesting site on norse culture is   www.hurstwic.org 

very interesting articles.

Something interesting about Norse mythology and religion is the importnce it placed on courage, even when faced with certain death.  This is because they had no belief in an eternal afterlife-even Valhalla is destroyed in Ragnorak.  Thus, the way to "live on" immortally was to display great courage, and that act of courage would live on in peoples' memory.  Look at Beowulf.  Even though an old man, and not having a chance of defeating the dragon, he still goes to fight it.  And his tale lives on today.  Edith Hamilton, in her book Mythology, has a small section at the end dealing with Norse mythology.
