Long before the Middle Ages, and Christianity, the Germanic people had a belief system that consisted of two types of Gods, the Aesir and the Vanir. For a long time the stories and legends were a spoken tradition in Scandinavia.
During the Viking Age and the Medieval Period, the tales were finally written down. Norse Mythology is filled with mystical places and complex deities and creatures. It presents a unique world view and an alternative perspective to modern religions. Norse mythology is a mystical adventurous tale that begins with creation and still influences pop culture today.
