So away I turned from my wise intent,
and deemed my joy assured,
for all her liking and all her love
I weened that I yet should win.
Odin's Love Quests
"I counsel thee, Stray-Singer, accept my counsels,
they will be thy boon if thou obey'st them,
they will work thy weal if thou win'st them:
hold not in scorn, nor mock in thy halls
a guest or wandering wight."
The Counseling of the Stray-Singer
I am the Digital Norseman and your host of this little outpost in Cyber Space. This is where I share my thoughts about current and past times. Think of it as virtual voyaging: a convenient and exciting way to travel across time and space. I also now publish a blog over at prebenormen.com.
I have organized my souvenirs in a few choice bundles.
I was Chairman of the BC Viking Ship Project in its first two years
and thus had a small part in building the 40 foot long replica Viking
Ship "Munin" which was launched in 2001 in Vancouver. Check
out the collection of pictures from the building of "Munin" in
the picture gallery.
Munin is celerating her 10th anniversary this summer. Check the event
calendar here and join the crew, if you wish, to help plan, organize
and carry out the celebration.
Here's a huge list of Viking Ship Replicas and ships inspired by Viking
Ships. Some ships are no longer in service and some were lost or damaged
beyond repair. Links have come and gone over the years, but this is
the most recent I have.
I grew up in Norway so it should come as no surprise that I take a
personal and close interest in my ancestors, the Vikings. This section
brings you some information about the Vikings and their culture.
The library is my collection place for stories, musings, papers, pictures
and other collectables.
If you're curious about this site or the Digital Norseman himself,
I've put together a little background information for you here.
