The Vikings, Anglo-Saxons, Germanic tribes, Goths, and other Germanic-speaking tribes are renowned today in myth, legend, and popular culture. But how did they live? What did they wear? How did they worship? What did they eat? And how did their traditional ways of life reflect their spiritual beliefs? Heathen Garb and Gear takes you on a tour of the world that our forebears knew. More importantly, it shows you how their ways of dressing and living—from weaving woolen cloth and cooking food, to making music and taking steam baths—are reflected in the myths and traditions that have come down to us. Anyone who’s ever wanted to wear Viking clothing, or serve authentic Viking feasts, will find plenty of practical tips here. But even if you’re not interested in re-enacting the old ways, you’ll find much vital information and inspiration for the practice of Heathenry as a living religious tradition.
