This is the page where you will find all those cold countries! Scandinavia is made up of Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Plus there's Finland, Iceland, Greenland, and in North America, it includes Canada. Antarctica down south will be included here, too.
And this is also the place you will find anything to do with the Vikings, who came from Scandinavia, and Norse mythology. I have lots and lots of materials that will find its way onto this index!
I am amazed at how erroneous was my perception of the exact relationship of these countries to mainland Europe and England. It wasn't until I read The History of the Vikings that I really began to study my atlas in earnest. I must say, I also was quite embarrassed that I knew so little about this part of the globe, I mean really basic stuff, like the fact that Denmark is really attached to Germany and cuts the German coast in half! If you are also unfamiliar with the layout of these countries, take the time to study a map or atlas. It's really fascinating.
And the lives of these people is fascinating, too. I have become quite a fan of Norse mythology and sagas, and Nordic designs are beautiful— quite similar to Celtic. The Vikings flourished mostly between A.D. 785 and 1050, but of course, this page also includes modern books from these countries. I hope you enjoy all these wonderful resources.
