Thor, Odin, Valhalla--all names you've probably heard of before, but names you might not know represent one of the most unique religions ever conceived. The Norse, the Vikings, the Scandinavians--whatever you prefer to call them, they were one of the most dominant and different civilizations to ever grace our planet. The combination of their civilization and beliefs systems is something that has puzzled outsiders for ages. The religious tenants lasted over a thousand years, despite never being written down. The gods are still well known today, even though they haven't been worshipped in a thousand more--that is, by most.
Dive into the world of the Norse, where adventure and honor take the place of morality and proper behaviour; where fire-breathing wolves bluster about only to be slain by someone as common as you or I. Life is death, war is peace, and gods are mortal in this ancient, gripping belief-system. You will learn about the roots of the Norse and Viking beliefs, and read about everything from dangerous sea explorations to human sacrifice. Walk the streets of the holy city of Uppsala and feel the wraith of Thor's hammer. Learn what the inside of Valhalla looks like, and what Vikings believed they had to do to get there!
The course comes with eight question and answer sessions following each lesson to ensure knowledge retention as well as entertainment. Ever wondered how the greatest explorers saw the world through their eyes--find out today!
