I feel proud to present to you one of my favourite viking sites on the internet! *Tadaaaa*
http://www.jelldragon.com
I wish to recommend this site as it has a very comprehensive collection of Viking age reproductions. The Jelling Dragon has been up and running since 1997 and it is now one of the most popular Viking re-enactment websites in the world. This awesome business sells primarily to Viking and Early Medieval re-enactors ,and living history enthusiasts. Followers of the Old Norse Ways can also find their supplies here, and successfully breathe life into the ancient lifestyle, in this modern time and age.

As you may well know, I have a LOT of bling in my hair, and these are among my personal fav beads!(OOooh sharing one of my personal style secrets)They can stay in for days if used on top of a rubber band on a well braided braid (both in hair and beard)

The site even has its’ own section on Åsatru Pagan Supplies to help old souls with modern day revival of the Old Norse religion

Let’s show Thor some love by wearing the mighty Hammer! All chains and thorshammers are 100% solid 925 sterling silver. You can create your own necklaces, or puchase chains and hammers separately. A must have for all heathen souls .


Looking for drinking horns? Here you can find hand made ones from cleaned and polished cow horns. They are supplied unlined and are safe to drink from. You wouldn’t want to risk your life while devouring “the drink of the gods”, now would you? 😉

Drinking horn terminals can also be purchased here. If you are a man or woman of strong will, you can order custom made drinking horns. I am pleased to see that they even offer to stample runes (elder futhark!!!) into the rims. Ah, the glory! 😀

Viking shoes / Norman shoesI often get asks in my inbox about where to buy viking shoes. Well, it seems that this site has it all. To see more costume pieces, crafts and accessories, please visit;

The Bifrost Bridge, Book Rewiev

Some time ago, I was contacted by a writer named James Bradley Clarke, who wanted me to do a book rewiev for him.
Here it is 🙂

The Bifrost Bridge is book one of the Viking Princess Sagas, written by James Bradley Clarke. This charming piece of work is Clarke’s first children’s book, and it certainly makes for an auspicious debut! The original princess story has sprung out from the love of his daughters and fairy tales that he used to tell them when they were little. The Bifrost Bridge is a mix of many elements such as Norse mythology and magical fairy tales, all nicely woven together in the medieval setting of Tønsberg, Norway.

This old fashioned tale of high adventure is about Princess Silya from Norway and Pricess Hedda from Denmark, two brave cousins who find themselves in the middle of a dispute between the god of trickery and the Asgardians. The girls are confronted by Trolls, Fire Giants, Loki and the Fenris wolf who are all out to destroy the kingdom for the sake of getting what they want. Can the princesses manage to restore the peace, or will chaos win?

Clarke’s book is different than any other children’s book out there in Midgard. It is a distinctive fantasy story about friendship and bravery that I am sure many children and their parents will enjoy. Mr Clarke’s fairy tale world is rich in details, which makes it an enjoyable read that is both heartfelt and exhilarating. My Viking thumbs up for this extraordinary book of magic, heroes and heroines. I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of the other Viking Princess Sagas.
