The title for this blog comes from the Vǫluspá in the Elder Edda. The forn spǫll fira means the ancient story of men in Old Norse.
The purpose of this blog is to deal with ancient stories. Most of them will probably not be about Vikings. Often there will be a modern connection but I will usually not make the connection explicit. "He who hath ears to hear, let him hear."
Ideally I hope to post something about once a week.
Someday, I hope to figure out how to fix the fonts so that they will display the necessary strange characters properly.
