Greetings! My name is Eirik, I am a writer, artist, and bona fide Old Norse Philologist. My blog and podcast, Brute Norse, is all about exploring the world and legacy of ancient and medieval Scandinavia.

With Brute Norse I aim to see beyond the corny stereotypes, look beyond the basics, and explore how old things and perspectives can still be made tangible. Through my own brand of guerilla academia, I try to apply wit and humor to educated, research based content. Digging deep to bring you tasty tidbits and playfully weird curiosities from the vast body of archaeological sources, Old Norse literature and mythology, to its enduring and sometimes unseen legacy in the modern world. I write articles, rants and reviews, often spiced with my personal takes on art, culture and counter-culture, and the role of history in contemporary society.

Writing and producing content is very time consuming. My work is much like that of an artist: The time and labor I put in far exceeds the money I get in return, but that's fine. It's difficult to quantify my work, but pledges allow me to cover production and material costs I would otherwise not be able to afford, and profits beyond this go to develop Brute Norse even further. 

If you enjoy my work, please consider becoming a patron. As a patron you pledge a monthly donation of your choosing in exchange for a set of rewards that fit you. Anything is helpful, be it little or much.

I am not asking for a handout: I want my supporters to feel included in my work. Among the rewards I can offer are exclusivearticles and lectures, sneak peeks, early access to new podcast episodes, merch discounts, as well as a seasonal Brute Norse button pin.

Help me make a difference, anything helps!

Heill ok sæll! Be healthy and happy!
