The longship is the beginning of a journey. In ancient times, it bore merchants and raiders alike across the seas, changing their lives, leading them to riches and war. In the spirit of the vessels of old, this website aims to be a beginner’s guide to all individuals interested in studying Heathenry. Because regional traditions differ from each other in many ways, this website cannot address every possible nuance of Heathenry. Instead, it covers the basics—the foundations—upon which all regional traditions are built. This website provides a framework for any person interested in Heathenry and suggestions on how to continue one’s studies.
