I recently read that Viking women could have as many same sex relationships as they wanted and if their husband objected they could just threaten to divorce him and I know this isn’t an ideal situation but fuck me if it isn’t funny.
Well, the husband could accuse her of adultery at the Thing, and she would get in lots of legal trouble… so not many wives would risk it.
A look at Viking age burial practices in Scandinavia. ~S
Death as an architect of societies Burial and social identity during the Viking Age in South-western Scania
Lunds University Department of Archaeology and Ancient History: Master Thesis in Archaeology – ARKM21, Spring Semester (2014)
In this thesis I explore the subject on how burial was used by Viking Age population of South-western Scania to express their social identity. As opposed to most earlier research concerning Viking Age burials I utilise regional, mourner-centred and practice-based approach. I am following observations conducted for burials in Denmark by J. Ulriksen (2011), focused on traces of deposition of burned and unburned human remains in the grave fills, the practice of opening the burial and tracing the intersection and overlays of the graves…
Dean’s 5th tattoo. It’s of the wolf, Fenrir, from the Norse Poetic Edda.
My computer is still ko so I drew this scheme of Freya’s aett… I am sure that whoever is familiar with the Norse Runes knows what I am talking about. I also added Freya’s favourite berries and flowers.
