The Vikings were Norse seafarers, who from the late 8th to late 11th centuries, raided and traded from their Northern European homelands. However, what do we know about their view of the world? How did the Norse believe the the Universe came into existence? In this lecture Paul will discuss the early cosmotheism of the Norse and how their mythology explains their view of the world and wider Cosmos. Moreover, he will provide an overview of what we know about the Norse constellations and how they differ from the contemporary view of the night sky as used by astronomers today.
