Ep 51 - Berserker: Fact or Fiction with Ruben Terlouw

av Nordic Mythology Podcast | Publicerades 2/18/2021

This week Mathias and Daniel are sitting down with Ruben Terlouw, archeologist and one of Heilung's famous black-clad Harii warriors. He and the boys will be conducting an in depth discussion of the Beserker in Viking myth and culture. Were they an elite group of warriors clad in bearskins, or Christian propaganda? And where do the magic mushrooms come in? Bite your shield and get ready because the answers will be complicated!  If you would like to do further academic reading on Berserkers check out the resources Ruben mentioned by future podcast guest Roderick Dale at: check out our Instagram: if you like what we do, and would like to be in the audience for live streams of new episodes to ask questions please consider supporting us on we are trying to add 100 new Patrons!
