Dwarves and Elves in Norse Myth

An interesting video from a professor of Norse mythology, with a reading of the "catalogue of Dwarves" from the Völuspá, wherein you might recognize a few names!
I recommend taking a look at the rest of his channel as well, a very good resource.

Neat!

I've been looking at a lot of his rune stuff lately, but missed this.
Very very cool. :)
Persona: Aerlinneth, Dúnedain of Amon Lendel c. TA 3010.

I really enjoy the Jackson Crawford video's on Norse mythology.....it is interesting how much Tolkien drew from the old tales.
In the darkest part of Sherwoods glade, in the thickest part of the wood, there are those who say, can still be seen, the ghost of Robin Hood.

Wow! Great find, definitely need to check out his channel. I loved hearing such familiar names and titles, shows how grounded in history Middle Earth really is (in certain ways).
I wish only for green trees, cool wine, a strong bow, and a swift arrow
