Welcome weary friend,
to Fjörn’s warm hall,
where a kind skald sings
old stories anew!
Both harp and hearthside
beckon you hither,
mirth’s old harmony!
Here in this humble hall we explore the medieval North through its sagas, sharing stories both old and new with our fellowship of guests. As a result, this Hall is both a resource and a gathering place for people who are passionate about the history and culture of the Norse, Anglo-Saxon, and Celtic worlds. While a Guest of the Hall, you will not only enjoy good mead and stories by the hearthside, but also a wide variety of informative resources put together by a graduate student with magical powers:
So, weary wanderer, take your place near the hearth and join our company and fellowship! Together we shall feast with mead to warm our stomachs and sagas to warm our hearts!
Skál! (Cheers!) 🍻
— Fjörn the Skald
