Three Video Lectures on the Viking Mindset

Heritage Today has a fascinating article entitled Death, Narrative, and Understanding the Viking Mind, which   describes a trio of lectures by Professor Neil Price of Aberdeen University on the topic of understanding the Norse mindset. This is of particular importance to those of a more reconstructionist bent within Heathenry, as remolding the modern world-view into something closer to that possessed by our spiritual ancestors is one of our goals, as it is key to placing the beliefs and practices of those ancestors into the proper context.

The article also has links to all three of the lectures on YouTube. They're long, but promise to be well worth the time invested in watching.
