Viking Mythology gives us an insight into what the pagan Vikings believed. They are supremely beautiful and explain in a way that only people living in such a dramatic wilderness of contrasts could conceive of how we came to be. Magic rites and prayers to the god of their choice played an important part in daily life and a desire to enter Valhalla, the hall of the slain. Unlike most religions the Viking gods were subject to Fate represented by the Norns and were doomed to eventual destruction at Ragnorok, the final battle.
