Today I speak with Dr. Mathias Nordvig of the University of Colorado Boulder. He teaches Pre-Christian Nordic mythologies, Scandinavian folklore, North Atlantic and Greenlandic literature, reception history of the Viking Age in the Nordic Studies Program there. We discuss Old Norse death poetry, what those poems teach us about the Viking Age, and more.
