Good episode? Give it some love!
Today I speak with Dr. John Hines, Professor of Archaeology at the School of History, Archaeology, and Religion at Cardiff University. We discuss the origin of the Old Norse language and the influence it has had across the medieval world. Additionally, we discuss the Old Norse system of writing (runes) and early examples of this type of writing.

The Poetic Edda is a collection of medieval Icelandic poems about the Norse gods and their human heroes. It is a crucial source for Norse myth and has inspired the literary works of J.R.R. Tolkein and the operas of Richard Wagner.
