Vikings: Fact and Fiction (With Kelsey Fuller-Shafer)

When we talk about the Vikings, who are we talking about, exactly? What can we learn about Viking culture by looking at their myths? And which of the ancient sources about them (if any) can we trust?

This week, we take a look at Norse mythology and history with Dr. Kelsey Fuller-Shafer, author of Norse Mythology: The Gods, Goddesses, and Heroes Handbook: From Vikings to Valkyries, an Epic Who’s Who in Old Norse Mythology (a kind of companion book to our Women of Myth). Join us as we get to know the Vikings. Get the show notes here.
