Norse Mythology – The Mead of Poetry
The Mead of Poetry is such a gripping tale, telling of the time when two sociopathic dwarves murdered the wisest human being who ever lived. The dwarves then embark upon a killing spree, murdering two giants, whose son later seeks to avenge their death. It is truly a marvelous myth centered around Odin and his quest for wisdom.  The History of Vikings on YouTube https://bit.ly/2TW2DEh Follow The History of Vikings on Twitter https://bit.ly/2Qsg28b Feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, suggestions or inquiries that you might have noah@thehistoryofvikings.com Music: Danheim - Framganga https://danheimmusic.com/
