Go­ðan dag. My name is Eirik, I am a writer, educator, 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. I write articles, rants and reviews, often spiced with my personal takes on art, culture and counter-culture, and the role of history in our dizzy society.
 
With Brute Norse I aim to see beyond the corny stereotypes and all the basic stuff, hoping to plug a gaping hole in the presentation of Scandinavian history and literature. This is a serious, source-critical venture, but I also look for existential meaning along the way, exploring how how old things and perspectives can help us understand the world and ourselves. Through my own brand of "Scandifuturist" guerilla academia, I try to keep my content dynamic but informed. Digging deep to bring you tasty tidbits and playfully weird curiosities, from the vast body of archaeological sources, Old Norse literature, and mythology.

Writing and producing content costs a lot of time, and a little money, but a man has to eat. This is a work of passion entails other sacrifices, but your pledge can help me cover maintenance and production costs, material for new content, and other things I otherwise can't afford.

If you enjoy my work, please consider becoming a patron. Anything helps. There are a variety of tiers to pick from, and various rewards accordingly.

Heill ok sæll! Be healthy and happy!
